Presenters include:

  • Shajay Bhooshan from Zaha Hadid Architects presenting Striatus, a 3d printed concrete bridge designed without the need for reinforcement, mortar or steel connections 
  • Andy Coward, founder of Net Zero Projects and minimassTM presenting low carbon, low cost, 3D-printed structural beams
