Scaffolding to Structure: Construction in thin-shell masonry

British cathedral fan-vaults, Catalonian tile-vaults, and Mexican adobe structures. Masonry experts from the ETH, University of Cambridge, and Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) will lead seminars in vault construction, where structural principles will be tested through hands-on experience with materials and methods. Based in Cambridge, UK, our excursions will include locations closed to the public: On the roof of King's College Chapel, at Ely Cathedral, Peterborough Cathedral, and the Wren Library.Seminar Week book: Scaffolding to Structure.InfoRegister
