Founding Committee Member - South Africa/Africa
Chris is the founder of 7by6 Design. Imagine an industry of cross-disciplinarily designers, where the lines between architecture and structure are blurred and a beautiful cityscape is created through architectural engineering. We see an industry where engineers are not number crunchers, but designers; collaborating with architects and other professionals, and celebrating structure in the creative process. Not simply engineers that make buildings that stand up; we design buildings that are efficient and elegant while aiming to help create spaces that are engaging and enjoyable. We provide architecturally sensitive structural engineering where architecture guides structure and structure in turn guides architecture in a collaborative loop.
