This evening (June 15) at 17h30 for 18h00, Rob Young will present a walkabout titled Specialized Structural Engineering & the KZNSA

The walkabout takes a look at translating architectural vision and concept into a complimentary structural engineered building

In 1994 an international competition was held to select a design for a gallery for the KwaZulu-Natal Society of Arts. Young UKZN graduates Michál Cohen and Cindy Walters submitted the winning design and, 20 years later, the building remains contemporary, robust, flexible and aesthetically pleasing.

Rob Young is a partner at Durban based consulting structural engineering firm, Young & Satharia, and the lead structural engineer for the King Shaka International Airport buildings and International Convention Centre roof.

The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
