Convention Center Designed to Attract the International Conferences - Dublin ,Ireland

The Convention Center,designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Assoc. located on a site adjacent to the Royal Canal between North Wall Quay and Mayor Street.It has been designed to attract the international conference and associated exhibitions market to Dublin. The Center is composed of a number of different elements, which can function separately or in concert, to meet a variety of conferencing, exhibitions, and small meeting demands. Together with the two major 18th century buildings on the Liffey, the Four Courts and the Customs House, the Convention Center promises to have a major presence for the city.
The main attraction is its glass lobby facing the River Liffey. A tilted glass cylinder, 54 meters high and 39 meters in diameter, intersects the granite wall of the south facade, creating a partial parabola. The glass cylinder opens up to the activities inside and makes for a highly visible entrance.
