- PRESS RELEASE
Khalifa University announced that it will host a lecture by renowned structural engineer William F. Baker on February 5th, 2013 at the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR), starting at 7:15pm, as part of its ongoing Distinguished Speakers Series. The event will be open to the public.
He will use real life examples, including is work on the Burj Khalifa, and he'll challenge modern architectural beliefs by encouraging engineers to retain control over the design process.
Mr. Baker is best known for the development of the 'buttressed core' structural system for the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest manmade structure.
While widely regarded for his work on supertall buildings, his expertise also extends to long-span roof structures, such as the Korean Air Lines Operations Hangar and the Virginia Beach Convention Center, as well as specialty structures like Broadgate-Exchange House and the GM Renaissance Center-North Lobby.
