'Scaffold Silhouette'

Scaffolders construct a new office tower in Beijing’s new Central Business District, in scenes reminiscent of 1930s Manhattan.

Graduated: 1998.
Biog: Since graduating from Cambridge University nine years ago. I have been working as a structural engineer with Arup. I have concentrated on multidisciplinary building engineering design, spending five years in London before moving to the Beijing office in 2003. My work in China has concentrated on projects related to the 2008 Olympic Games, in particular the design of the gravity-defying CCTV Headquarters Building which is now taking shape in the city. I am currently working on other projects in Beijing and the East Asia region.
