Brum takes flight

Education

We’re delighted to see after the success of the Birmingham project last year (Next Generation Design Brum) the initiavtive has grown it’s own wings in the form of MakeitBrum. Great to see this continue for Brum schools, and we wish them all the best in continuing the adventures.

Lecture at the Bartlett

Uncategorized

In a continuation of our efforts to spread the virtues of structural engineering tomorrow I’ll be giving a lecture to 4th year Architecture students at the Bartlett. The talk will mainly focus on how we can inform intelligent form through an understanding of structural simplicity and elegance. For anyone interested in this field I’d recommend checking out the legendary D’arcy Thompson and his book, ‘On Growth and Form’!
