Datos de Proyecto

Ubicación: Rome, Italia

National museum for art and architecture of the 21st century

Construction period: 2003-2009

Architect: Zaha Hadid, London


  • high fair-faced concrete requirements
  • smooth fair-faced concrete with predetermined joint and tie pattern
  • widely curved reinforced steel walls with heights up to 14 m without horizontal concrete joint
  • self-compacting concrete SVB with concrete pressure up to 150 kN/m²
  • reverse inclination of front wall



Beneficios para el cliente

  • achieving very high surface qualities
  • easy positioning of the 3D formwork due to high dimensional accuracy
  • no deflection when erecting the VARIO large elements

The formwork utilisation planned by PERI and the support on the spot during the construction time enabled us to experience the best possible construction sequence. For us, VARIO was the perfect wall formwork system which made the production of these parts possible, which are extraordinary regarding their shapes and dimensions. Adjusted to the use of self-compacting concrete with a fresh concrete pressure of up to 150 kN/m², we were able to achieve very high surface qualities.
