Dante Bini and his son Nic Bini will give a talk about the inflated concrete dome Dante invented in 1964. The Binishells are circular-based, monolithic, reinforced concrete thin-shell structures that are lifted and shaped by low air pressure. Used in a range of projects from affordable housing, schools and shopping centers, they became extremely popular for their quick construction time, low cost, high strength and reduced carbon footprint.

Free to attend. Booking essential.
