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 climate in Abruzzo, Italy, is strongly influenced by the Central Apennine Mountain range. The sub-mountainous area has a continental climate, with frequent frosts in winter and high temperatures, even above 30 °C, during summer. Rainfall is strongly affected by the presence of the Apennine mountain ridges, resulting in an annual precipitation average of 1500 mm.
