V&A Engineering Season

From June, 18 – Nov, 6 2016 the V&A will be holding a number of events and exhibitions for their Engineering Season which highlights engineers as the ‘unsung heroes of design’. Mtec will be installing the Elytra Filament Pavillion, designed by architect Achim Menges with Moritz Dörstelmann, structural engineer Jan Knippers and climate engineer Thomas Aterm which opens on May, 18.

The Pavilion will grow over the course of the Season in response to data on structural behaviour and patterns of inhabitation of the Garden and visitors will have the opportunity to witness the Pavilion’s construction as new cells are fabricated in-situ by a Kuka robot.

Other events include a celebration of British Engineering in London and an exhibition covering the legacy of Ove Arup’s life’s work.
