Event description

Description

Technical Lecture Series

The use of computational tools in Structural Engineering design has progressed to where the results inform the everyday creative thought and tool set of a Structural Engineering practice. They enable collaboration between Engineers and other designers on a fundamental level. However, the methodology can also hide an inherent contradiction between creative freedom and practical constraint. This lecture explores those benefits and potential pitfalls.

Stephen Melville is a Director of Format. Formerly a Director of Whitbybird Engineers then Design Director of Ramboll, Stephen set up Format in 2014 with the goal of establishing an Engineering design studio which considered Structural Engineering, geometry modelling, digital optimisation, fabrication, research and education as a unified discipline.
