This talk will show why Atelier One has built a world-class reputation for ingenuity and innovation in the field of structural engineering.
Working collaboratively with clients, Atelier One closely integrate their engineering solutions to achieve a seamless contribution to each project; one which transcends the sum of its composite parts.
Neil Thomas FIStructE is the Director and Founder of Atelier One.He holds a number of high profile posts in the UK & US educational service, most recently being a Visiting Professor to Yale and MIT.
Collaborations with architects, artists, and designers have resulted in many interesting built projects such as Gardens by the Bay, London 2012 & Sochi 2014 Olympics Opening Ceremonies, Cloud Gate with Anish Kapoor and ‘The Claw’ Stage for U2’s 360 Degree World Tour, with Mark Fisher.
In 2014 Neil was elected Royal Designer for Industry for excellence and innovation in structural design and for sustained ingenuity as a structural engineer in collaborations to create ground-breaking public art.
Later in the same year Neil received an Honorary RIBA Fellowship for both the excellence and the inventiveness of his contribution to architecture over the past 25 years.
