What we do

Visitate il sito del concorso nazionale per le scuole “Costruire correttamente”!

The  Pier Luigi Nervi Project Association is a non-profit organisation which was founded six years ago with the objective of contributing to a renewal of study and knowledge about the life and work of the Italian engineer and architect Pier Luigi Nervi.

Headed by Marco, one of the grandchildren of Pier Luigi Nervi, the association  is engaged in coordinating the scientific research and financial support that allowed the birth and development of the international traveling exhibition “Pier Luigi Nervi Architecture as Challenge.

Pier Luigi Nervi
Architektur als Herausforderung

19.9.–22.10.2013

ARchENA und Architekturfoyer (HIL), BLOCK Lab (Bauhalle, HIF C 51), Hönggerberg, ETH Zürich 

 Eine internationale Wanderausstellung würdigt diesen visionären Ingenieur und verankert sein Werk in der Gegenwart. Die von Prof. Carlo Olmo kuratierte Ausstellung zeigt zwölf der bekanntesten Arbeiten Nervis anhand von Bildern, Originalplänen und –zeichnungen sowie Modellen und eindrücklichen grossformatigen Fotografien von Mario Carrieri. Die Präsentation an der ETH Zürich wird ergänzt durch eine Zusatzausstellung der Forschungsgruppe von Prof. Dr. Philippe Block am Institut für Technologie in der Architektur.

In addition to this exhibition which is being enriched with content as the research progresses and develops along its international itinerary, the association intends to engage in several other areas: It prefigures the new edition of the Norton Lectures given by Pier Luigi Nervi at Harvard University in 1962, in anticipation of a more extensive recovery of Nervi’s writings.

Other field of focus for our association are educational activities. Besides ongoing research projects like the NerViLab, the latest result of our work in this field is the contest elaborated for the Italian Ministry of Education Pier Luigi Nervi: Costruire correttamente, which addresses itself to all grades in Primary and Secondary School.

The commitment of the Pier Luigi Nervi Project will also focus on the conservation and rehabilitation of structures by Nervi, not only in Italy but also on an international level, with the hope of contributing to a scientific awareness and  protection of architectural heritage of Modernity, of which the structures by Nervi remain among its highest expressions.
