James O'Callaghan - Gold Medal Address 2019

James describes the leaps that have been made with glass as a structural material, examining the close relationship between engineering and fabrication; a relationship that he believes is fundamental to the success of any engineering innovation.

Over the last two decades, James has pushed the development of glass as a structural material, exploring its behaviour and its limits in creating ambitious, transparent structures.

Close collaboration between industry and research institutes continues to drive technological advances, and James looks at the exciting possibilities and how these advances could deal with challenges facing the discipline.
