For the World Expo in Milan, the host country presented an architectural highlight: the 35 m high “Palazzo Itali”, a complexly shaped reinforced concrete building featuring 6 floors and a photovoltaic glass roof, embraced by a delicate outer envelope (“skin”). Compared to the other pavilions, the structure was the only permanent piece of architecture at Expo 2015.

It was a big challenge to realize this geometrically demanding building in reinforced concrete within the extremely tight time frame. Thanks to the PERI solution, the combination of standard systems and customized elements which were specially produced for our project, we could work more logically and productively. In addition to this was the close cooperation with the PERI engineers and supervisors so that we were able to maintain the planned construction schedule and achieve the best results.
