The building will be divided into three bodies separated from each other by two interior streets which will allow visual communication between the Diagonal and the Torre Melina gardens and also provide natural light for the rooms. The first body of the building, the main entrance one, will have an ample vestibule and a hall with an amphitheatre for 2.500 conference-members. Beneath this hall there will be another one arranged for banquets (equipped with kitchens).

In the central body of the building a space will exist sized rooms, while on the upper floor there will be a large hall with movable walls so that it may profit from the different forms of natural light, attaining enormous polyvalence thereby. This space will be reserved for more versatile uses, from exhibitions to the presentation of products, demonstrations and the like.

The third sector of the building, quasi-semicircular in shape, will be smallest in size and will house the cafeteria, with overhead light, a travel agency, complementary services and other offices.
