Dutch-based architecture firm-UNStudio Architecture Studio has revealed the design for the Elyson Congress centre in the Netherland's Eindhoven. The project, a new landmark for the city, will be designed, constructed, funded and operated by the Elysion Consortium, along with Van der Valk, Tillemans, DVP and Quant Architecture. UNStudio plans to expand the original floor plan by adding a wood-and-steel auditorium with a capacity of 1,500 as well as vertical gardens, a foyer and catering spaces to the congress centre in Brainport- Eindhoven's leading innovative technology region.

UNStudio won a contest to remodel the conference centre along with extending the Brainport region's international appeal.
There will be five significant innovations integrated into the project- high impact landmark, vertical green gardens and sustainable approach, a new mobility hub for brainport, a foyer that joins people and program, and a flexible solution for feasible exploitation. These integrations will improve the sustainability of the Elysion Conference Center.
The auditorium and a foyer will be cantilevered above the existing buildings so that the original hotel and conference facilities can function during construction. Wood and steel will be used in the construction of the new auditorium.

According to the firm, a wooden staircase and "vertical green gardens" will be part of the foyer. The firm is also planning to construct a tower with hotel and leisure facilities to entertain international guests.
Wood and Glass Façade
As per the firm, the project will feature a wood and glass façade, which will be coupled with NO2- nitrogen-dioxide absorbing surfaces.
Nitrogen dioxide can be harmful to human health, generally released by cars and the burning of fossil fuels.
Innovative Nano Technology
The latest nanotechnology will be used to capture pollutants, dust, or harmful particles from the surroundings.
The firm is working on using nanotechnologies to create materials such as concrete and paint.
Greener Transport Options
As a part of the Elysion Congress Centre extension, the Dutch-based firm is looking at greener transport options such as more electric car charging ports in addition to bicycle parking space.
