"The combination of multiple #PERI#formwork and #scaffolding systems together with efficient #engineering support was the key factor in ensuring that the #concrete#construction challenges we faced could be mastered. In particular, the on-time deliveries of the pre-assembled formwork units enabled us to shape Rio’s newest landmark." Edilson Costa (Site Manager) about the cooperation with PERI at the construction of the #museumoftomorrow in Brazil.
Museum of Tomorrow – The futuristic building in Rio de Janeiro!
The futuristic #museumoftomorrow in Rio de Janeiro is one of the technically spectacular buildings of the famous architect #santiagocalatrava , which protrudes for 300 meters into the ocean. The façade and the roof consist of movable parts which are responsible for the air-conditioning. #PERI planned and supplied more than 3,500 customized special #formwork elements (28,000 m²) based on system formwork within only 13 months for the implementation of the extraordinary building. Supported by PERI UP shoring and work #scaffolding as well as a #VARIOKIT formwork unit, it was possible to assemble the customized elements on site into the overall 3-D formwork.
The museum opened at the end of 2015 and since then has been dealing with the questions: Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we? What is going to happen with us? How do we want to live?
There are many interesting ancient structures in India which is big challenge "FOR THE" world to Reconstruct !!!
Location: Madurai, Tamil Nadu
Founded In: 17th century
Dedicated To: Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati
Meenakshi Amman Temple, this temple counts amongst the four most sacred abodes of Goddess Parvati in India. The second legend goes that Indra, the God of heaven, found Shiva's idol, in the form of the lingam, in Madurai and went on to build the Meenakshi Temple.
Even today, during festive processions, a model of Indra's vehicle accompanies the idol of the deity. The temple is known throughout the world for its breathtaking architecture and stands adorned with 12 magnificently sculptured and painted gopurams (towers). Though the temple has been mentioned in Tamil literature since antiquity, its present structure is believed to have been built in the early 17th century. The history as well as the time of construction of the original Meenakshi Amman Temple is not known.
It is said that the temple was pillaged by Malik Kafur, a Muslim invader, in the year 1310. Almost all the ancient features and elements of the temple were destroyed at that time. Arya Natha Mudaliyar, the Prime Minister of the first Nayak of Madurai, was the person responsible behind the reconstruction and restoration of the Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple. The period of 1623 to 1659 saw valuable contribution being made to it by Thirumalai Nayak. He also got the Vasantha Mandapa constructed.
The sanctum of the temple is more than 3500 year old.
