Erik Nitsche: Centre Des Congrès in Monaco
Artist: Erik Nitsche
A tiny principality with a rich history, Monaco is tucked along the French Mediterranean coastline. The nation has been at the forefront of modern trends in Europe, especially during the twentieth century. Nowhere is this better seen that in Monaco's architecture. The architectural legacy of the Grimaldi Prences is evident; ultra-modern structures are built on land reclaimed from the Mediterranean and co-exist side by side with traditional structures such as Monaco's cathedral and those found in the Palace Square area. Designed by the noted European architect Vasarely, the Centre des Congrès complex -- complete with heliport -- occupies a stretch along the Monaco shore. The building's design represents a modern solution to the functional problems inherent in office buildings. It features a horizontally integrated structure with plenty of window area and "open" space.
