Tristram has designed remarkable structures all over the world, including The Beijing 2008 Olympics “Watercube”, the Helix Bridge in Singapore, and the City of Manchester Stadium. In this lecture he argues for the wise use of computer models, even early in the design process, making reference to his own projects. He also urges senior members to learn the capabilities of modern computing and share their knowledge with colleagues.
