The winning photograph
|The winning image in the Alumni Photography Competition recently held at the Department of Engineering, was taken by Chas Pope.
Chas describes the photo as 'The basic building blocks: piles of bricks can be found everywhere on Chinese construction site, some neatly arranged, others veering off at unlikely angles like a half-finished game of Jenga.'
He went on to say, 'Since graduating from Cambridge University nine years ago. I have been working as a structural engineer with Arup. I have concentrated on multidisciplinary building engineering design, spending five years in London before moving to the Beijing office in 2003. My work in China has concentrated on projects related to the 2008 Olympic Games, in particular the design of the gravity-defying CCTV Headquarters Building which is now taking shape in the city. I am currently working on other projects in Beijing and the East Asia region.'
