In the afternoon of the 2nd of May the biannual symposium Value of Design will be held.
The goal is to highlight both the architectural part and the engineering part of several projects, focusing on the collaboration between the two disciplines. This editions theme will be 'Shaping the Extraordinary'. Designs of building which have astonishing shapes will be elaborated from both the architectural and the structural point of view. Structures which are not only remarkably high (2-dimensional), but which extend in multiple directions will be discussed in detail.
