Engineered Skins 2019

The 10th annual symposium, Engineered Skins 2019, was held at the University of Cambridge on the 12th of September. This year, Engineered Skin welcomed, together with the researchers of the Glass and Façade Technology group, also presentations by the researchers from TU Delft.  The day showcased therefore the most recent research from the two leading Universities in the field of structural glass and facade technologies. Lastly, Miriam Dall'Igna from Foster and Partners and Prof. ir. R. Nijsse from TU Delft were the invited keynote speakers for this year symposium. The one-day event was attended by around 90 delegates from active members in the glass and façade community.

This was a free, invitation only event. If you are interested in attending next events, please contact us at .

The 8th Engineered Skins symposium was successfully organised by gFT on the 7th of September 2017 in Cambridge. gFT researchers presented the latest findings from their research projects to an audience of 70 guests composed of industry experts and leading academics from the UK, other European countries and beyond. The event also featured two outstanding keynote presentations by Dr Shrikant Sharma from Buro Happold and Dr Jonathan Cullen from the University of Cambridge that provided an insight on novel tools for data driven and people centred building designs and thought-provoking ideas on resource efficiency in the construction and build environment. The event closed with dinner at Christ's College that provided an excellent opportunity to continue the lively discussions.
