Exhibition plan: Pizzi element and component system is a high-strength fiber concrete element & components solution, which allows to replace traditional sandwich elements in existing block houses. Naturally, new Pizzi buildings are welcome. Originally Pizzi system was designed with Partek ltd. in Paris France by Risku (under Partek Dimensio™ brand, today Cembrit ltd.). Partek ltd. was a forerunner in fiber and high-strength concrete manufacturing with 3D moulding and on-site logistics.
Ricardo Bofill‘s Les Espaces d’Abraxas buildings in Marne-la-Vallée were part of the Dimensio™ development project.
