“Virtual Prototyping for Architects: Engineering Design from Bricks to Composites”

James Solly is a Chartered Engineer, a Marie-Curie Fellow working within the Innochain ETN Network and a Research Associate at the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart. His current research focuses on the development of virtual prototyping strategies for the robotic fabrication of fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP). Prior to his current academic role, James worked at Ramboll UK, BuroHappold Engineering and Format Engineers, delivering geometrically complex projects that ranged from experimental sculptures to international museum extensions.
