Topic: Engineering Complexity: the lesson of two iconic concrete structures
On the basis of two different key projects, Stuttgart 21 in Germany and Kuwait International Airport Terminal 2, it is shown how digital tools and methods can be adopted to support design and construction of complex projects. The parametric approach in design on one side and the increased use of digital (pre)fabrication and modularisation strategies on the other one, open the way to a new generation of buildings which combines the iconic character of infrastructural architectures with a more effective use of resources. Yet, there is still a huge demand for innovation in the overall process and researchers can provide an essential contribute to the necessary paradigm shift.

Lucio Blandini studied structural engineering at the Universities of Catania and Bologna before moving to the University of Stuttgart. There he obtained his PhD at the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design (ILEK). In this context, he developed and built the so-called Stuttgart Glass Shell, a filigree glass-only shell structure spanning 8.5 m. After completing a master’s degree in architecture at the University of Pennsylvania and at the Architectural Association in London, he took up a position as project manager at Werner Sobek. He has been partner as well as managing director since 2018. Since April 2020 he has also been head of ILEK and a full-time professor at the University of Stuttgart. His most important projects include the Ferrari Museum in Modena, the Mansueto Library in Chicago, the special facades of the Japan Post Tower in Tokyo, the railway Station Stuttgart 21, the Etihad Museum in Dubai, the House of European History in Brussels, and Terminal 2 at Kuwait International Airport.
