Our newest issue of The Arup Journal details some of our most innovative projects around the world.

Key features

  • We’ve painstakingly tunneled under the iconic Sydney Opera House to allow the world-famous venue to better accommodate 8.2 million visitors every year and 1,000 vehicles per week – all without affecting the performance schedule.
  • In China, Arup engineered the country’s second stock exchange building in Shenzhen, with a dramatic cantilevered podium 37 metres high.
  • Our design and build of the spectacular 1,000 person capacity Vegas High Roller has brought the world’s tallest observation wheel to fruition.
  • The Reid Building, the latest addition to Glasgow School of Art, provides a “complementary contrast” to the neighbouring Rennie Mackintosh Building, one of Scotland’s most cherished architectural icons.

Articles on the United Arab Emirates (King Abdulaziz International Airport); and South Africa (renewable energy), and a tribute to Sir Philip Dowson - one of four founder-partners of our architectural arm, Arup Associates; complete the line-up for our most extensive ever edition of the Journal.

This edition was edited by David Brown, who is now setting down his pen after 26 years as editor and a previous 20 year assistant editorship. We wish him a fond farewell.

Since 1966 The Arup Journal has presented the best of our work and thinking.
