The premises of the BVV Trade Fairs in Brno, representing a significant architectural area since the 1930´s, are facing a radical transformation. It is necessary that these premises be interconnected with the city and used not only for exhibition purposes. Our primary objective, for a new pavilion D and a refurbishment of the current pavilion C, was to design a really flexible building which would serve not only the current exhibitions but where it would be possible to organize a wide range of cultural and sports events interconnecting the pavilion with its surroundings. The pavilion is a generous hall having a width of 78 m x 99 m, without a single support, and a hight of 10 m. The building facade is movable, it can be adjusted according to the needs of actual events. The proposed solution comes from a design of an effective large structure with the entrance division for visitors and suppliers. Visitors entrances are 3 m high and are protected from adverse weather conditions. Suppliers entrances respect the obligatory spacial requirements and are 7 m high. These parameters form the basis for the pavilion itself.
