The “Mandolesi Pavilion”: an information model for a process of integrating multidisciplinary knowledge



The Mining Engineering Pavilion was designed by Enrico Mandolesi in 1962. It represents an icon heralding the transition from masonry to reinforced concrete and the use of “new” materials. Its recovery may become an important starting point for integrating all scientific levels, from the construction history, which reconstructs the history of the project and that of the building site, up to the most sophisticated energy diagnoses that include the definition of an integrated information system on the building, to be used in cutting-edge style with the BIM approach or even with experimentation in a first-step evolution towards a cognitive building.
