Candela Lecture


Since 1997, the Structural Engineers Association of New York and The Museum of Modern Art, together with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Princeton University, have hosted a lecture series in honor of the structural engineer Felix Candela, who led the early exploration of tensile shell structures. These lectures were given by some of the most prominent structural engineers working today.
