International Spy Museum
Designed by renowned architects, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, and local architects, Hickok Cole, the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC is a 130,000 sf, distinctively designed steel building with museum exhibition, office, retail, classroom, and event spaces. The building’s innovative design incorporates architecturally-exposed, sloping steel columns along the south and west faces that are part of the building’s gravity load carrying system and support an intricate series of exposed steel monumental stairs and platforms as well as a sixty-foot-tall glass “veil”. This presentation will provide an overview of the building’s structural concepts, as well as highlight and discuss the various structural engineering challenges encountered throughout design and construction.

The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures
The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, located in Los Angeles and designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, transforms the historic May Company Building into more than 50,000-sf of galleries and archives, and introduces a base-isolated spherical addition with a 1000-seat theater and event terrace. This presentation will describe the significant challenges in engineering the theater and accommodating its movement. The speakers will describe the use of advanced technologies and unprecedented structural solutions that provide flexible connections between the two buildings.
