The project proposal for the new International Fair of Sardinia in Cagliari has the intent to create a modern trade and congress center. In order to guarantee the requested program insight the existing fair area, functions have been compacted , providing a large parking place for visitors at level 0. At Level 1 are placed the congress and exhibition areas. This design choice grants both visual and functional connection with the nearby Waterfront area. The project aims is to make a weld between the project area and the Waterfront.
The bridge that exceed the highway on level 1, creates new spatial and visual relationships, reducing the distances to the opposite sea front, to enhance the intrinsic potential, such as the placing of accommodation structures and harbour areas, that can be used for boat exhibitions.
