Post Ductility: Metals in Architecture and Engineering

The Third Columbia Conference on Architecture, Engineering and Materials will be held September 30-October 2, 2009, at The Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University in the City of New York. Sponsored by the Steel Institute of New York, the Ornamental Metal Institute of New York, and the American Institute of Steel Construction, the conference will bring together a wide range of leading architects, engineers, and scholars, as part of a multi-year project to explore the dramatically changing limits of known and new materials in an era of rapid urbanization and within unprecedented forms of technical measurement, coordination, and production that increasingly blur the boundaries of professions and of materials.
