Our second annual Digital Design and Computation e-conference was held on our cutting-edge online platform in May 2020 and is now available to watch on-demand.

The on-demand conference is comprised of:
  • 9 technical presentations that offer an exciting exploration of digital design through case studies and talks from world leading experts
  • A panel discussion on low-carbon design through data and computation
  • Software demonstrations from our sponsors Ansys, Idea StatiCa, Oasys and Trimble
  • Access to a library of resources, including lectures, blogs and presentations on related topics

Keynote speaker Bill Baker FIStructE, the engineer behind the Burj Khalifa, discussed design in the computational age. Bill is a structural engineering partner at Skidmore Owings & Merrill, best known for the development of the “buttressed core” structural system for the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest manmade structure.

The e-conference includes the following presentations:
  • Design in the computational age - Bill Baker, SOM
  • Structural optimisation that architects don’t hate - Matt Harrison, Atkins
  • A digital sprint: from concept design to World Cup stadium in 12 months - Hannah Lazenby, Arup (Australia)
  • Computational engineering: connect everything to everything - Rob May, BuroHappold
  • Automated generation of a 3D excavation model - Fauzan Reza Maulana, Mott MacDonald (Singapore)
  • Grown, optimised and integrated: digital timber design - John Spittle and Johannes Rebhahn, Wiehag
  • Optimising structural utilisation of large span steel structures - Ian Poole, Mott MacDonald
  • AI and the structural engineer – Peter Debney, Arup and Oasys
