Although it looks like Dan won something, he sort of didn’t. His long and arduous read Disassembling Detroit received the Clancy Prize Diploma “for papers of merit related to the understanding and practice of the whole life management of structures including surveys, investigations, strategic planning, testing and subsequent works to the structure.”
The actual Clancy Prize medal (medal>diploma) for properly special people, was this year awarded to Kalaichelvi Navaratnarajah, For his paper ‘Engineering towards a resilient world – managing client expectations’ published in April 2016.
Enormous thanks to everyone who took part in the Crossing the Atlantic charrette at the BMRA’s Decon’16 on Tuesday. It was a great session. Lecture notes and group work results can be found here.
