Structural Design

The projects below are examples from our Civil Engineering and Architecture course where students work to develop structural design proposals in response to a client brief and a specific site. This year’s projects have concentrated on the redevelopment of Southampton University buildings with a focus on structural form and performance, function and the user experience, materials and construction processes. They have been developed and communicated using a range of design methods; sketching, technical drawing (Autodesk AutoCad), three dimensional computer modelling (Autodesk Revit), physical model making, hand calculation and computational analysis (LUSAS) to provide fully resolved structural solutions
