Max Berg designed this emblematic building, a symbol of the city of Wrocław, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Centennial Hall represents a milestone in the development of reinforced concrete technology worldwide. It is a multifunctional building located on the grounds of the city’s trade fair, where there are contributions from the most outstanding names in German architecture of the period, from Hans Poelzig to Hans Scharoun. In this environment conducive to innovation, Berg was able to create a building – drawing on historic models – that combined an innovative use of a new technology with an optimal aesthetic result, opening up a myriad of new paths for experimentation.
The Technical Institute of Construction and Building was born in 1934 (now Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Sciences IETcc), the first organization created in Spain to steer, further and publish research on construction and related areas to foster progress, promoting the use of concrete and cement.
