Palazzo Italia, Expo 2015, Italy


ロケーション: Milan, イタリア

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.


  • Highly complex geometry and according load concentrations
  • Fixed deadline for completion

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.


  • Orientation of materials logistics and technical support at a jobsite support with accordingly short availabilities.
  • Slabs are formed with SKYDECK and MULTIFLEX and are supported with PEP and MULTIPROP slab props.
  • High loads can be transferred also over the height of several floors with MULTIPROP aluminum props until the building structure can support itself.
  • PERI UP Flex serves as modular-type shoring system for formwork support and for steel construction, with its 25-cm increments optimally adjusted to the complex geometry and the according load concentrations.
  • Custom-fit special steel formwork elements can be connected with standard TRIO elements for the quiver-shaped reinforced concrete parts. The modular-type formwork solution thus can be used at different heights and ensures simple and fast work processes even for complex structures.
  • 2,000 m² of TRIO panel formwork for the shuttering of the walls, compatible with RUNDFLEX circular formwork and TRIO column elements
