Structures, Algorithms and Stone/Timber Prototypes

Conference Report


A one-day seminar on structures, algorithms and stone/timber prototypes was held on 11 January, 2016 at the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture (DICAR) of the Politecnico di Bari. The event included an exhibition of student work, in the morning session, followed by a series of lectures by international academics.
