Rio De Janeiro Special

Contributing to Museum of Tomorrow

Contributing to Museum of Tomorrow

A customized Peri formwork and scaffolding solutionThe Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava, is well known for his pursuit of uniqueness. Under his leadership, Rio de Janeiro´s harbour area is receiving a new landmark: the 'Museum of Tomorrow'.

This futuristically designed building is the central component of the ambitious 'Porto Maravilha' urban development project which has been designed to transform Rio´s historical waterfront into a thriving cultural and residential landscape by the start of the 2016 Olympic Games.

Located on the highly prominent Pier Maua, Calatrava’s sculptural structure extends 300 m into the sea being surrounded on three sides by water. The cantilevered roof and facade with moving elements ensure optimum air conditioning.

The two storeys are connected by means of inclined ramps and have a total area of 5,000 m²; when open, the museum will showcase trend-setting exhibitions and technologies.

A customized Peri formwork and scaffolding solution with 3,500 project-specific special formwork elements is contributing to creating an extraordinary museum within the specified time-frame and budget.

International teamwork

In order to allow the complex in-situ concrete design of the museum to become a reality, Peri planned, produced and delivered more than 3,500 project formwork elements, mostly double-curved 3D formwork units.

For the comprehensive formwork and scaffolding planning, as well as the assembly of the formwork elements, Peri international teamwork has been responsible throughout.

For the 3D planning at the Peri headquarters in Weissenhorn, the German engineers were supported by experienced specialists from the Peri subsidiaries in Spain and Poland.

The respective assembly plans and data provided the basis for the dimensionally accurate CNC-controlled cutting of the formwork units and final assembly.
