IASS 2018 | Creativity in Structural Design
July 16-20
MIT Campus | Kresge Auditorium
Boston, MA

In July 2018, the annual Symposium of the IASS – International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures – will take place in Boston, an American hub of academics and innovation. Hosted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the symposium brings together leading designers and researchers working in structural engineering and architecture from around the world.

The symposium theme, Creativity in Structural Design, celebrates work in the built environment that pushes beyond the status quo and synthesizes across disciplines to solve important problems of today and the future. Empowered by recent advances in computation, materials, and fabrication, creative structural design is expanding possibilities for shell and spatial structures.

The week’s schedule is posted here. Sessions will be posted soon. Register and continue to watch the IASS site for details!

About the IASS:

The IASS, founded by Eduardo Torroja in 1959, seeks to achieve further progress by an exchange of ideas among all those interested in lightweight structural systems such as lattice, tension, membrane and shell structures, and in the creative integration of architecture and structural engineering more broadly. The Journal of the IASS is in its 58th year of publication. More information can be found at the organization’s website: www.iass- structures.org
