Cultural and technical backgrounds to the design of structures

The Edward and Mary Allen Lecture in Structural Design 

Jürg Conzett, citizen of Schiers (Switzerland), born in 1956 studied civil engineering at EPF Lausanne and ETH Zürich. After receiving his diploma in 1980 he worked for several years in the office of architect Peter Zumthor. In 1988, he started his own office as a structural engineer. Today, the firm Conzett Bronzini Partner in Chur (Grisons) investigates existing constructions and designs new bridges and buildings, often in collaboration with architects.
