This month's letters consider the future of the built environment, the sustainability of timber as a building material, and offer further views on subsidence, among other topics.
All the articles from the February 2020 issue of The Structural Engineer.
This article discusses some of the technical challenges in the design of the building structure – prompted by its unusual arrangement and constrained site – and how they were overcome. In particular, it will focus on the design and construction of the 1073-seat Grand Theatre spanning 37m over a column free public plaza.
