Architectural gems by Zaha Hadid

Our Halls 3A and 3C opened in 2014 and 2018 and have been thrilling clients, exhibitors, and visitors ever since. The work of star architect Zaha Hadid, these halls are not just highlights of architectural design, they also serve as role models of energy efficiency. According to the experts from the DGNB, the German Sustainable Building Council, no other exhibition halls anywhere in the world offer statistics comparable to NürnbergMesse’s 3A and 3C – which is why both halls have been awarded the DGNB’s Platinum Certificate.
