The project and construction of the Lima
Convention Centre (LCC) is contextualized by
the agreement between the Peruvian State and
the World Bank and the International Monetary
Fund to hold in Lima the 2015 Board of
Governors. The Peruvian State saw this event
as an opportunity to extend and improve the
congressional infrastructure available in the
capital of Peru.

Strategically located in the Cultural Centre
of the Nation (CCN) – next to the National
Museum, the Ministry of Education, the new
headquarters of the National Bank or the
Huaca San Borja – the design of the LCC was
to satisfy four strategic objectives: being a
cultural and economic motor for the country,
representing a meeting place at the heart of
the city enrooted in the collective Peruvian
culture, turning into a unique, flexible and
technologically advanced architectonic
landmark and finally, triggering the urban
transformation of the CNN and its surroundings.

The near 15,000 m2 of net area correspond to
the 18 multipurpose convention halls, their
sizes and proportions varying from 3,500 m2
to 100 m2, which allow for up to 10,000
people to attend simultaneous events. The
rest of the programme fills a total built up
area of 86,000 m2.
