ESO Supernova

Germany

In Garching, 15 km north of Munich, a totally extraordinary building, known as the ESO Supernova Planetarium and Visitors Centre, is now under construction. The building's cubature takes its cue from a narrow double star system. The walls are both inclined off the vertical and curved, presenting significant challenges for the formwork. Each pouring cycle is different. Each formwork panel is unique. It fits only in a single spot in the structure. And everything has to be delivered to site just in time and then taken back. For this purpose, Doka's formwork experts developed an efficient concept that includes 3D planning, panel assembly and disassembly and logistics.
