Description

The Intersection of Architects and Engineers - LSAA Conference & Design Awards

Design Beyond Boundaries remembers the work and influence of Frei Otto, the brilliant German Engineer and Architect who developed designs and concepts using forms and materials that were generally beyond the previous experience of both engineers and architects of the day. Frei Otto passed away in 2015 having redefined the juncture of architecture and engineering.

The conference explores current approaches and tools used in the design of the minimalistic forms found in tensioned lightweight structures (for example fabric membranes, cable nets and timber grid shells). It will examine how they have evolved over the years from experimental physical models using stockings, lycra or soap films through to computer generated 3D virtual structures.

Beauty of architecture, efficiency of structural form and appropriateness of material use were fundamentals of Otto’s work. This conference will highlight a selection of current Australian projects. These presentations have been tailored to provide an in-depth view into the design challenges, approaches and solutions adopted.

The Conference Workshop questions whether design tools have progressed significantly, and more importantly, will leave delegates with an appreciation of the roles both physical and 3D virtual modelling will play in solving complex design challenges into the future.
