Parc des Expositions

The new Parc des Expositions (PEX), in the innovation zone of Toulouse, southern France, is a project that is not only about architecture, but infrastructure. PEX is designed to be a condenser for diversity, a machine that can produce an infinite amount of possibilities. The project is a compact mini-city - an antidote to the sprawl of a standard exposition park, and a means to preserve and guide the surrounding French countryside.
