Competition proposal of the Exhibition and Conference Centre located in the vicinity of the Rzeszow-Jasionka airport terminal.

The building was supposed to become a symbol of modern Rzeszow, a city with metropolitan ambitions, claiming the title of Capital of Innovation.

In front of the main entrance, a large square was designed for organization of open events. Thanks to use of the extensive arcade created by the corner of the building, it is roofed in major part.

The structure of the center block refers to the aviation traditions resulting from the location in the immediate vicinity of the airport. Slim, streamlined, slightly raised shape and titanium-zinc sheet cover are the allegory of taking-off aircraft.

On the upper floor of the building there is a complex of multifunctional rooms, chat rooms, press center and catering facilities. In a characteristic corner detached from the ground, the Great Hall was located for 700 seats. Multifunction rooms can operate independently or, after sliding a sliding wall, create one large space.

Chat rooms and a press center are located around an open courtyard located on the ground floor of the exhibition hall, thanks to which they have a direct view on the events taking place at the fair trades.

Due to exposed view from the windows of the aircrafts and a  vis-a-vis location of the terminal, the appearance of the fifth facade of the building is of great importance. The facades smoothly move into the roof, hiding technical floors.
