Earlier this month, Doggerel sat down with our co-founder David Lambert to talk about our approach to find sustainable solutions for poverty and our biggest project, the Same Polytechnic College. Doggerel is the online magazine of Arup in the Americas. Doggerel explores the ideas that matter most for the built environment today and in the years to come, from trends reshaping entire disciplines to technical modifications that open new possibilities for a single project. The magazine sources stories from within the firm and beyond, spotlighting the work of clients, collaborators, competitors, and others who push industry boundaries.
Arup, an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants, and technical specialists, is responsible for some of the world's most noteworthy achievements in architecture and engineering including the Sydney Opera House and the Centre Pompidou. Engineers from Arup's office in Los Angeles have contributed their expertise and knowledge to the design of the Same Polytechnic College campus.
