Make It Work - Engineering Possibilities

Make It Work: Engineering Possibilities

Today's engineers are working across disciplines and driving innovation.

Make It Work. Engineering Possibilities looks at how engineers are envisioning and realizing the future of our built environment by transforming structures, improving environments, enhancing materials, re-inventing building technologies, and advancing forms.

This exhibition highlights how inventive strategies for building are born from multidisciplinary research and integrated practice.

Small engineering firms, large engineering firms, engineering schools, university labs, materials labs, artists, inventors, and architects are all part of the exchange of ideas - plotting trajectories of innovation.

Building on observations, analysis, and mathematical principles, engineers have developed the profession from empirical analysis into a field of expertise based on predictability and synthesis.

With digital simulation and processing capabilities, engineers are utilizing comprehensive models to explore different options for optimizing structures and systems.

Twenty-first century engineers are tackling some of the most challenging concerns of our day.

Exceeding LEED standards for sustainable building, engineers are conceiving of new ways for buildings to harvest and manage energy - floors that create electricity and facade systems that respond to the sun.

This exhibition highlights how inventive strategies for building are born from multidisciplinary research and integrated practice.
