First Young Professionals Technical Series Lecture Print E-mail
Younger Member Forum
On November 14, 2013, engineers assembled for an intriguing structural engineering presentation by young professionals of Robert Silman Associates. The technical presentation marked the first lecture of the Young Professionals Technical Series. Three projects were presented by Graham Seward, Karen Miller, Justin Den Herder and Tony Struck. Graham discussed a residential townhouse renovation in Manhattan, Karen presented the complexities of the design and construction aspects of the St. Patrick's Cathedral renovation, while Justin and Tony depicted the complicated design challenges for the Virginia Commonwealth University Institute of Contemporary Art, a Steven Holl project.
