Philippe Block: Reimagining Shell Structures
Professor Dr. Philippe Block leads the Block Research Group in ETH-Zurich.
Philippe Block’s and BRG’s inspiring and innovative research draws its lessons from the study of long-forgotten engineering and architectural achievements, the art of masonry shell structures, and transcribes these lessons to a contemporary context, aiming to open new and more effective ways to design and build.
In January 2018 Philippe Block gave a lecture at the AA in London, sharing the group’s work and the amazing research they are currently doing at the ETH.
