contributed by Naomi

Located in the centre of the city, next to the old Citadel, the Palacio de Congresos y Auditorio de Navarra, or short: Baluarte, is one of Spain’s largest cultural and commercial congress center. It was elected winner out of a design competition organized by the regional government of the Spanish province Navarra, with the purpose to enhance the local economy and provide space for larger cultural activities. The name ‘Baluarte’ means fortress or bastion, and is directly related to the nearby 16th century fortification of Pamplona. The building is situated in between the old medieval town and the fortress, - now park. The architect derived inspiration from the stronghold brick walls and its pointed shapes. Especially the pronounced ‘corner’ resembles these forms.
