Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre, Gothia Towers, is to become even bigger through the addition of a fourth tower. The winning design by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter creates an open environment that provides shared space for gastronomy, culture and events as well as for meetings and trade fairs, adding more dimensions to the overall visitor experience. “The winner has presented a magnificent tower which is significantly taller than the existing Gothia Towers and will be a new landmark for Gothenburg,” says Carin Kindbom, President and CEO of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre, Gothia Towers. +One includes a new, inviting entrance which blurs the lines between outdoors and indoors. Entrants faced the challenging task of designing a fourth tower to house around 400 hotel rooms, meeting spaces, restaurants, offices and a terrace with room for up to 1,200 guests. (kf)
