David Billington’s presentation on September 9 will also be the next lecture in the Fazlur R. Khan Distinguished Lecture Series. This series was established by Professor Dan Frangopol as part of the Fazlur Rahman Khan Endowed Chair of Structural Engineering and Architecture at Lehigh University (http://www.lehigh.edu/~infrk/).

David Billington lecture at Princeton

Distinguished Lecture Series announcement

Last fall I visited Professors Maria Garlock and Sigrid Adriaenssens’s structures class at Princeton to talk about my father (I posted a few photos in March 2011). During the year the students built models of five of his high-rise designs and prepared for an exhibition about my father’s work in the engineering library. I am looking forward to attending the opening next month, which will include a lecture by Professor David Billington about his “Personal and Professional Recollections of Fazlur Khan.”
