|27th Dr George Hondros Memorial Lecture : Unique designs — the power of multidisciplinary collaboration. Delivered by Tristram Carfrae Award-Winning Structural Engineer, Director and Arup Fellow.
Tristram Carfrae is responsible for the design of an impressive array of award-winning buildings and is regarded internationally as a leading designer of light weight long-span structures.
In collaborating with some of the world’s best architects, he has a reputation for challenging the established way of doing things; for exploring better solutions; and moulding both materials and people to his vision.
Tristram is behind the design of The Water Cube - Beijing’s National Aquatics Centre for the 2008 Olympics. He also boasts an impressive portfolio of other projects including: Helix Bridge, Singapore; AAMI Stadium, Melbourne; 1 Shelley Street, Sydney and Kurilpa Bridge, Brisbane.
He is named as one of Australia’s Top 100 most influential engineers and was Australian Professional Engineer of the Year in 2001.
Tristram will present stories about several projects that he has helped design over the past 30 years that illustrate how architects, engineers and, in some cases, contractors work together to produce unique designs.
