This odd work, renowned as “armadillo”, is itself subject of exhibitions and it has already become the symbol for the city of Glasgow. Beside a new exhibition hall without columns, measuring 5.400 mq, the centre offers a variety of services for conventions, among these an auditorium with 3.000 seats.

The building, with its astonishing shape, contains all the services inside, minimizing both the capitals and the operatives costs, while the steel structure sight emphasizes the functional nature of the project.
