ICE Kraków Congress Centre is a modern world-class site dedicated to culture – music: from classical to rock and jazz, to ballet, theatre, meetings and conventions. Designed at the highest standards of acoustics and mechanics, it meets international congress organisation norms. Besides the three main halls with 1915, 600, and 300 seats, respectively, the shell holds a multifunctional conference space of 500m2. ICE Kraków stands in the most prestigious location: opposite Wawel Castle, a location that influenced main design decisions. Hiding a multi-story foyer open to a panorama of the ancient city of Kraków, the Vistula embankment façade is spectacularly transparent. The outer shell combines glass, ceramics, and aluminium, with colours ceramic tiles reflecting those of the interior: red of the main hall, graphite of theatre hall, white of the foyer, and the silvery aluminium used for the roof. The multi-element composition of the shell is intended to reflect movement and life: the dynamics of a modern, developing city.
