Description

***Only livestream is available now***


An engineer in pursuit of clarity


Over the last two decades, James O'Callaghan has pushed the development of glass as a structural material, exploring its behaviour and its limits in creating ambitious, transparent structures.

In his address, he will describe the leaps that have been made with glass, examining the close relationship between engineering and fabrication; a relationship that James believes is fundamental to the success of any engineering innovation.

Close collaboration between industry and research institutes continues to drive technological advances, and James will look at the exciting possibilities and how these advances could deal with challenges facing the discipline.


About the 2019 Gold Medallist


James co-founded Eckersley O’Callaghan in 2004, and since then has grown a small UK business into a world-renowned engineering design practice, with six offices around the world.

James’ work is noted for groundbreaking use of glass, resulting in structures that showcase the beauty and elegance that great engineering can achieve. He has famously collaborated with Apple, enabling the brand’s global flagship stores to occupy some of the most extraordinary glass structures ever conceived.
