The show

A new investigation path between scientific research, human sciences and creative knowledge.


In the construction world it has materialized for decades in wonderful structural inventions, the result of calculations, measurements, engineering calculations on beams and pillars. In the new millennium a new actor took over: technology, applied in a thousand ways, from design to management of buildings and cities. Structure, technology (and care for the environment) will intertwine with ever less clear boundaries in the future.


The exhibition is divided into two sections that are anything but separate. On the one hand, a path in construction engineering traditionally understood, with drawings, images, models of the absolute cult of structural engineering, from the Sidney Opera to the masterpieces of Nervi, from Beaubourg to the Lloyds of London. On the other, an immersion in digital culture and technology, with "tangible" experiments on the application of robotics, digital manufacturing, artificial intelligence, big data and environmental engineering.
