G-20

Los Cabos, Baja California

The Federal Government of Mexico selected FR-EE to design a world-class Convention Center in Los Cabos, Mexico, that would host the annual G-20 Economic Summit in 2012. The leaders of the world’s largest economies, including United States President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, took important steps to ensure strong, sustainable and balanced global growth. Located alongside a private golf community with views of the surrounding desert landscape on one side and the Gulf of California on the other, the Los Cabos International Convention Center holds a capacity of up to 6,500 people. FR-EE’s design offers visitors areas for exhibitions and conventions, multi-modal parking, a service mezzanine and other facilities. To meet a fixed deadline, the building was constructed in less than seven months, integrating sustainable land development techniques specific to the desert climate, and serves as model for green technology and sustainable design in Mexico. The Convention Center features a passive design strategy, one of the largest green walls in the world, a controlled drop irrigation system, photovoltaics, LED lighting, and natural light distributed through custom designed domes.
