Award for pushing the development of structural glass
Professor of Architectural Glass James O’Callaghan has been awarded the 2019 Institution of Structural Engineers Gold Medal. The Institution of Structural Engineers recognises his contribution to the exploration of the behaviour and limits of structural glass to create ambitious, transparent structures.
In his Gold Medal Address, James O’Callaghan described leaps that have been made with glass over the last two decades. He believes the close relationship between engineering and fabrication is fundamental to the success of any engineering innovation. This collaboration between industry and research institutes continues to drive technological advances.
