Tying into the convention theme, this session will review the work of some eminent pioneers and present protagonists of the art of concrete construction, followed by a discussion of the recent trend to merge architecture and structural engineering. Emphasis is placed on new visions and instruments in the domains of morphogenesis and the computational optimization of structures. The session is also tied into the International Lunch Lecture, which is devoted to the presentation of Pier Luigi Nervi’s work.
