BuroHappold / Dr. / Associate
Dr Al Fisher is an associate at BuroHappold Engineering, based in London where he leads Computational Engineering for the practice. A structural engineer with a background in computational design, he has particular interest in the geometry of freeform architecture, where engineering efficiency and form are so inextricably linked. His research is focused on novel approaches to structural design computation, enabling full integration of the design and analysis of shell, membrane and other lightweight and freeform structures.
Previously Al studied for his masters and PhD in Civil and Architectural engineering at the University of Bath, completing his thesis on generative complex geometries, applying his work to both structural analysis and computational fluid dynamics.
