Abstract


The talk will explain the creative value of engineering and, in particular, how a structure can look exciting without being complicated to make or build.

A range of projects will be described including the new Meads Reach bridge in Bristol that demonstrate how principles of geometry, engineering, materials and manufacturing methods have been used to go from simple base components to intricate and apparently complex three dimensional forms.
