HMEI Faculty Seminar

Tue, Dec 7, 2021, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Sigrid Adriaenssens, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, will present “Building Forms that Adapt to the Natural Environment” for our final talk in the fall 2021 HMEI Faculty Seminar Series.

Adriaenssens will discuss the challenge of designing lightweight structural systems that are conducive to a resilient and sustainable built environment, but must be implemented at large spatial scales over periods of decades to centuries. Adriaenssens — whose research focuses on the mechanics and design of slender large-span shells and membranes under extreme natural loading — has innovated structural and architectural systems ranging from adaptive shading devices for buildings, to coastal storm-surge barriers.
