Parametric and computational design play a major role in contemporary architecture and engineering. Designers need no longer conform to predetermined shapes and sections, but are given freedom to explore new geometries and structural forms. An example of how an organic process can be employed to finding the solution to a design problem is presented. Topology optimization is studied to suggest different alternatives for the creation of an open and functional internal tower structure in an educational building.

  • IABSE Conference proceedings compile papers presented orally at IABSE congresses, symposia, smaller conferences and workshops. Congress and Symposia Reports are dedicated to a broader conference theme dealing with all kind of structural engineering topics, such as concept, analysis, design, construction, operation and maintenance, and all kinds of materials. The smaller IABSE conference and workshops are usually dedicated to a specific theme.

    Reports from 1929-1999 can be downloaded for free IABSE Publication Archive.

    16 volumes of the IABSE Symposium and Congress Reports (2000- ) are available against cost at Ingenta (approx 5000 articles). Individuals can access articles by ‘pay per view’.
