Lehigh University, in collaboration with Buzzi Unicem USA and the National Museum of Industrial History, is glad to organize and offer an exhibit on the life and work of Pier Luigi Nervi, structural engineer and architect.

The exhibit will investigate the transformative contributions that Nervi has provided in the field of reinforced concrete, at the intersection between structural engineering and architecture. The event will be also an opportunity to reflect on the paramount role that the cement and concrete industry has had in the Lehigh Valley for more than a century, and on the Italian heritage in the region.

The exhibit is part of a portfolio of collaborations spanning scientific research, technology advancement, and cultural initiatives resulting from the strategic partnership between Lehigh University and Buzzi Unicem USA.
