About this talk

Running time: 41 minutes

"Who is the genius?" say the speakers in this talk. And the answer? "It doesn't matter. What is important is that there is great pleasure in working in this collaboration" (of engineers and architects).

Chris McCarthy and Guy Battle discuss work they have done with a number of architects, especially Will Alsop, and throughout they stress the collaboration.

Their multi-disciplinary consulting engineering practice Battle McCarthy was born within the Ove Arup Partnership, and has blossomed on its own since 1983. Battle (born 1962) is an environment engineer with knowledge of architecture, structural engineering and building services. McCarthy (born 1956) is a structural engineer who started out as a sculptor. Both have had wide experience in many countries.

Together they look at how they can use the structure of a building to moderate the climate, and create comfort within their buildings.
