Title:
Engineering the built environment
Synopsis
The paper aims to address the perceived divide between engineering and the built environment; primarily from the standpoint of an architectural practice. Using examples from competed projects, the speaker will attempt to demonstrate how engineers, architects and builders can collaborate to improve the built product, reduce expenditure and enhance the construction experience.
This lecture is especially suited to young engineers and engineering students as it provides an alternative viewpoint from which to celebrate engineering.
