The Art of Engineering

There is more than one solution to an engineering problem and this reality opens the door to creativity and the arts in engineering.  My work in this realm is inspired by the pioneering scholarship of Professor Emeritus David Billington.  This page describes my three main activities related to the integration of engineering and art: (1) a new initiative on campus; (2) related research; and (3) public exhibitions that illustrate engineering as an art form and also teach the general public about structural engineering.
