The Institution of Structural Engineers have announced the prestigious Structural Awards 2018 shortlist and Web Structures' Iskandar Puteri Public Art project in Malaysia has been nominated.
The creation of 15 bamboo art installations combined traditional techniques and modern analysis with the aim to promote bamboo as a sustainable and alternative construction and design material. Web Structures worked closely with the artists, providing detailed advice on the foundations, mounting details and the incorporation of an adequate structural system within an artistic framework.
The Chair of the Structural Awards Judging Panel, Professor Tim Ibell, commented - “This year we’ve received an unusual and imaginative collection of entries, from sculptural monuments by renowned artists through to a cricket stadium dubbed the ‘Lord's of East Africa’. The shortlist gives a fantastic overview of what’s going on in the structural engineering community on a global scale, highlighting the ambition, imagination and expertise of our profession. We’re delighted to have seen many more new firms entering their work for consideration in our unique celebration of structural engineering excellence.”
Congratulations to all Websters and the entire project team.
