Keynote Speaker – Neil Thomas MBE

We are pleased to announce the first keynote speaker for the IASS 2024 Symposium. Neil Thomas, founder of Atelier One, will enrich us with his presence this summer. In his work, Neil believes in a holistic approach to structural design, with active engagement throughout the design process. Form must follow function, there can not be a disconnect between architecture and engineering. We look forward to welcoming you in Zurich, Neil!
