Lima Convention Centre
The Peruvian State agreed with the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund to hold in Lima the 2015 Board of Governors. The construction of the Lima Convention Centre (LCC) is framed by this context, expanding and improving the infrastructures the city had up to then to adequately cater for the event.
The building was planned as a cultural and economic motor, a meeting place rooted in Peruvian culture and an architectural landmark
Strategically located in the Cultural Centre of the Nation – next to the National Museum, the Ministry of Education or the new offices of the National Bank – the design of the LCC sets three main objectives: being a cultural and economic motor, repre-senting a meeting place enrooted in the collective Peruvian culture and turning into a unique, flexible and technologically advanced architectonic landmark.Close to 15,000 m2 correspond to the 18 multipurpose con-vention halls, the rest of the programme being completed by underground parking space, kitchens, restaurants, cafeterias and other services.
