Bruce Danziger - The Pathways towards Zero Carbon for Tensioned Membrane Architecture


Danziger Engineering Collaborative, Inc. (Los Angeles, US)otis.edu/faculty/bruce-danziger

The Danziger Engineering Collaborative structural engineering consultancy was founded in 2020 by Bruce Danziger. From 1988 to 2020, Bruce worked with Arup in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, London, and Seville. He has been the Lead Structural Engineer for many complex and challenging projects including exposition pavilions, performing arts centers, tension membrane structures, embassies and consulates, and long-span structures for airports and stadia.

Bruce organizes an international group of tensioned membrane experts called Lightweight Footprint that meet regularly to define best practices for quantifying the sustainability of membrane structures.

Bruce has taught and lectured at many colleges and universities. Currently, he is a senior lecturer at Otis College of Art & Design, Loyola Marymount University and at the Danube University Krems Lightweight Membrane Structures Masters of Engineering program.  He enjoys sharing his passion for creativity and lightweight structures with his students and collaborators.

Title of Presentation:

The Pathways towards Zero Carbon for Tensioned Membrane Architecture

Short synopsis of the presentation:
Bruce Danziger’s presentation will focus on the sustainability of tensioned membrane structures. He will discuss how to learn and share effective methods to quantify and reduce the embodied carbon of lightweight structures. He will present Light Footprint’s development of a platform for the lightweight structures community to make embodied carbon reduction commitments
