James O'Callaghan to give IStructE Gold Medal Address
Eckersley O'Callaghan co-founder James O'Callaghan has been awarded the 2019 Institution of Structural Engineers Gold Medal. On 21 May, James will give his Gold Medal Address at the IStructE's headquarters in London.
Over the last two decades, James O'Callaghan has pushed the development of glass as a structural material, exploring its behaviour and its limits to create ambitious, transparent structures.
In his address, he will describe the leaps that have been made with glass, examining the close relationship between engineering and fabrication; a relationship that James believes is fundamental to the success of any engineering innovation.
Close collaboration between industry and research institutes continues to drive technological advances. James will look at the exciting possibilities and how these advances respond to challenges facing the discipline.
The address will also be livestreamed.
21 May 2019 | 17:30 for 18:00 start
