Brno, Sep 7 (BD) – The company will receive the money in 2019 and 2020. The loan must be repaid by the end of 2024. The total investment in both pavilions will be 500 million CZK. Brno Trade Fairs will provide the remaining 150 million CZK from its own resources, according to the City of Brno’s website.
It is worth mentioning that in the past, BVV was home to another “Pavilion D”, with a progressive ceiling structure designed by Radus Russ. In 2012-14 the pavilion underwent a complete reconstruction according to the K4 studio project (Jan Lacina, Zdena Němcová, Vladimír Pacek). The former “D” is now the main building of the VIDA! science center.
Between 1927 and 1928, the construction of the Brno Exhibition Center was completed. Photo credit: BVV.
BVV was established in 1928 during the First Czechoslovak Republic, and currently offers more than 130,000 sq m of net exhibition area, thus ranking among the world’s largest exhibition centres. With 780,000 visitors per year, BVV is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South Moravia.
