The City of Chartes has awarded Zaha Hadid Architects the contract to build its new Expo facility on the outskirts of the city. The project is part of the larger master plan of the ‘plateau du Nord-Est’ and will provide approximately 12,500m2 of internal exhibition space and approximately 4,700m2 of external exhibition area. The building’s design is a compact and functional solution within a strong and clear overall composition. Internally the building provides a flexible arrangement that enables up to 3 separate events to be hosted simultaneously and a roof-top cafeteria with views across to the cathedral. The estimated budget is €29.5million with construction due to start next year.
