International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures

The annual Symposium of the IASS – International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures took place in Boston, an American hub of academics and innovation. Hosted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the symposium aimed to bring together leading designers and researchers working in the fields of 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.

Prof. Bruno Figueiredo participated in the event with the communication
“3D printed ceramic vault shading systems”.
