Margaret Cooke presents her lecture "Less is More".

As we head towards 2050 we need to build less and re-use more. This requires a fundamental shift in how we work, in the training of engineers, in clever use of existing buildings, materials and components.

We will also need to change the way we value our work: how do we articulate our worth when no repair or change is necessary? How do we persuade clients that it takes courage and real expertise to say that an existing structure has sufficient integrity?

IABSE'S 2021 Milne Medal is awarded to Margaret Cooke, a founding director of Integral Engineering Design. Her lecture will be delivered online on 9 November. 

About the Milne Medal

The Milne Medal is awarded to an individual engineer for excellence in structural design, both in the overall concept and in the attention to detail in their work. It is named in recognition of the late Bob Milne, who served for many years as the Honorary Secretary of the IABSE British Group.
