This webinar explore the development, techniques and challenges behind shell lace structures.

Our expert panel from Arup and Tonkin Liu discuss the design and fabrication techniques of shell lace structures and their evolution and development. Using case studies, we explore:

  • Engineering theory and challenges

  • Computational techniques in generating, designing, and analysing shell lace structures

  • The role of physical models and prototyping in understanding structural behaviour and construction

  • Natural references

  • The evolution of fabrication, and lessons learned

 

Reasons to view

  • Hear about digital tools and techniques for shell lace structures, both in design and fabrication

  • Understand the engineering theory underpinning shell lace structures

  • Gain an understanding of the principles of shell lace, and the evolution of its technique and taxonomy
     

Who should view

This webinar will be of interest to all structural engineers, particularly those with an interest in computational techniques and the application of first principles engineering to innovative structures.
 

Speakers

Ed Clark is a Director within the Building Engineering Division of Ove Arup & Partners in London. Ed leads a wide range of projects working with leading and emerging UK and international architects. He has experience of both new-build and refurbishment projects across a range of different building typologies and scales from private houses to city masterplanning. He holds a firm belief in the concept of ‘total design’ and the improved quality and economy that can be generated through an integrated and truly holistic approach.

Mike Tonkin is a qualified architect and landscape architect. He established his practice after leaving the RCA in 1989 and founded Tonkin Liu with Anna Liu in 2001. Mike’s professional practice has been informed by a distinctive pursuit of form and lessons observed from the natural world. Mike has lectured at numerous schools of architecture, including the AA, the Bartlett School of Architecture, University of Cambridge, the RCA, and the University of Westminster. He is a Teaching Fellow at the University of Bath, where he is also currently undertaking a PhD.

Giancarlo Torpiano is a senior structural engineer, specialised in parametric design and dealing with complex three-dimensional geometries. He joined Arup in 2014 and forms part of a London-based multi-disciplinary engineering team which collaborates with many leading and emerging architectural practices. His experience ranges from sculptures to long-span roof structures and stadia. He is passionate about innovative architectural design and how cutting-edge engineering is key to its realisation. He currently teaches at the Architectural Association, London.
