The event featured a presentation of the Scotish Macallen Distillery by Senior Partner Mr Graham Stirk and Associate Partner Mr Toby Jeavons from Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partner: The distillery which is being build by Wiehag Timber Construction consists of a stunning glulam timber roof which will be the largest and most complex timber roof ever built in Scotland.

Ian Simpson of SimpsonHaugh and Partners talked about his design of the „Library Walk“ in Manchester, UK, which was constructed and built by Waagner-Biro. The “Library Walk” impresses with a sculpture made from 30 tons of mirror-polished stainless steel in the shape of a cloud formation, which rests on 26 glass panes that are 7.4 metres high, some of which are curved.
