The V&A Dundee has been shortlisted for an esteemed structural engineering award alongside buildings in India, China and New Zealand

The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) has revealed the shortlist of the 2019 Structural Awards, featuring 49 phenomenal projects from around the globe.

This includes the world’s tallest statue in Kevadia, India, a sports stadium with a roof consisting of rotating petals in Hangzhou, China, and a 22m deep mega basement under a 5-star hotel in London.

The awards are now in their 52nd year, celebrating the best in structural engineering.

Those shortlisted have been recognised for the prolific work of their structural engineers and the invaluable service they deliver.

The scheme recognises the positive impact these buildings have made, from soaring skycrapers and gravity defying bridges… to our very own outstanding V&A.

Winners will be announced on February 15 in London at an awards dinner and ceremony.

Good luck to Scotland’s first and only design museum.
