In 1978 Massimo Majowiecki established an office for structural engineering in Bologna (MJW structures) that created a remarkable number of projects; among them: the membrane covering “Piazza Italia” of the Fair District in Milan, the roof of Athens’s indoor stadium, the Olympic stadium of Rome and the “Delle Alpi” Stadium in Turin.
Having designed more than two hundred constructions, both in Italy and abroad, Mr. Majowiecki earned a great deal of expertise, which represents the foundation of Majowiecki’s experience–based, synthetic, conceptual design approach. Designing wide-span enclosures, from conceptual to working design phases, entails facing particularly complex structural problems, due to the scale effect of the loads involved.
Mr. Majowiecki’s experience enabled him to carry out extensive theoretical and experimental research, the results of which are nowadays shown by a great number of international congresses, as the “state–of-the–art” on the subject matter.
MJW structures works in the structural architecture field, designing structures made of wood, reinforced concrete (either normal or pre-stressed), aluminium, steel and composite hi-tech materials, applied to both conventional and special structures.
