International Conference on Structures and Architecture, ICSA 2010

The International Conference on Structures and Architecture, ICSA 2010, will be held in Guimarães (Portugal), from the 21-23 July 2010.

I will be presenting in the event, together with Eng. Iago González Quelle, the lecture “Tensile Structures. Interdisciplinary Teamwork as win-win Situation “.

We will be sharing our professional experience together and highlight the importance and benefits of a cross-disciplinary collaboration between architects and engineers in the design of tensile structures. In effect, one of the most distinctive aspects of tensile architecture is that architectural design and structural engineering are intrinsically engaged from the earliest phase of the planning process. This alliance affects significantly the aesthetic qualities of the project.

We will also addresses the potential of parametric design in the field of membrane architecture.

The conference will focus on the recent developments in the construction field and intends to stimulate and promote interdisciplinary teamwork between Architects and Structural Engineers.

The Conference will be held at the Convention Centre of the Campus of Azurém of the University of Minho in Guimarães, Portugal.

The conference program can be downloaded here.
