BCN World is the project of the largest integrated resort complex in Europe, a new tourist and hotel destination where leisure, gaming and commerce are complemented by entertainment, sports, culture to offer a complete and current response to the growing demand for high-quality tourism from emerging countries.
The BCN World planning model is based on the idea of minimizing the ecological footprint of the project, proposing a strategy of minimal occupation of the territory that combines the advantages of concentration and density in built environments designed to facilitate business, commerce, leisure and culture. In addition, with the formation of large open spaces will guarantee the environmental quality of the place and provide the necessary balance between the built fact and the natural landscape.
Each resort consists of high-rise hotel towers that emerge on a common plinth. The plinth allocates the public activities of the resort, theaters, restaurants, convention, and business centers as well as all the common and services areas of the hotels located on the upper’s floors. The typical section shows the ability of these pieces to fit different situations and requirements of the program, and to accommodate different section spaces, large courtyards to ensure environmental comfort conditions and a roof garden that solves the needs of the users and its relationship with the outside, the sun and the sea views.
