Philippe Block is Professor at the Institute of Technology in Architecture at ETH Zurich, where he co-directs the Block Research Group (BRG). Research at the BRG focuses on computational form finding, optimisation and construction of curved surface structures, specialising in unreinforced masonry vaults and concrete shells. BRG researchers develop innovative structurally informed bespoke prefabrication strategies and novel construction paradigms employing digital fabrication.
Juney Lee is a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher at the Block Research Group of ETH Zurich. He has Master of Architecture and Master of Structural Engineering degrees from MIT, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley. His research interests include graphic statics, computational geometry, algorithmic design and geometry-based structural form-finding methods and sustainable materials and construction.

Interested in the design, specification, use and manufacture of shell and spatial structures?
This course demonstrates the similarities between stadium engineering and other types of design. It stresses the importance of the Class 3 structure review regulations and the critical compliance with stadium design guides.
This half day course covers the methods by which the lateral stability of a building structure is achieved.
This advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
