Architecture Club Presents… Ian Firth: Elegance in Bridge Design
Tuesday 5th May
Doors at 7pm // Talk from 7:30pm

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.
