Brussels Forum Session: The Economic Counteroffensive: Rebuilding Ukraine

Stuart Smith leads the structural design team at Arup in Germany. He is an expert in innovation and sustainability in structural design, and he established a series of research projects—including prototype development—on open-source design, digital fabrication, and material cycles.

Smith contributed to the design of the Tate Modern in London, the CCTV Tower in Beijing, and the Reforma 509, a 240-meter-tall building in the highly seismic Mexico City. He has worked with prominent artists such as Doris Salcedo for the installation "Shibboleth" at the Tate Modern and Ai Wei Wei for the Serpentine Pavilion 2012.

Smith studied civil engineering at City University and Imperial College in London and went on to work for Arup London for almost 20 years before moving to the company’s Berlin office.
