Architecture Club Presents… Ian Firth: Elegance in Bridge Design

Tuesday 5th May

Doors at 7pm // Talk from 7:30pm

Elegance really matters in the built environment, but what is it when applied to bridges? For bridges to delight their users over their long design life they must embrace a wide range of elusive factors.

Ian Firth is an engineer and bridge designer with Flint & Neill in London, and has worked with many bridge architects on notable bridges large and small around the world. Drawing on his experience he will attempt to define elegance in this context and show that it is not merely about appearance but also about process.


ARCHITECTURE CLUB, FROME is a collaborative project initiated by Pippa Goldfinger, NVB / Rook Lane and RIBA South West. The project will bring architects, architectural writers, engineers and planners to Frome in order to stimulate a wide-reaching debate
