Date published: March 8, 2012

The design was created by renowned architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra, who is one of the chairs of the CEMEX White Cathedra, an ongoing initiative coordinated by CEMEX in Spain in partnership with several Architecture Schools in Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, and most recently, in Seville. Its intention is to disseminate knowledge about the characteristics of white cement among last-year students, as well as in relation to applied end-of-course projects.

The expansion of the Congressional Palace has three levels of construction that comprise press and videoconferencing rooms, simultaneous translation cabins, a cafeteria, and VIP rooms. Next to this new auditorium are a ramp with 4,080 m² of internal and external exposure and a multiple use building with a registry, offices, and event rooms that can be configured in different ways using a movable paneling system. These two structures are connected by a floating walkway. The building also counts with various large spaces for storage and installations.

CEMEX is one of the world's largest producers of white cement. Customers use this specialty product in architectural works requiring great brightness and artistic finishes, to create mosaics and artificial granite, and for sculptural casts and other applications where white prevails.
