Exhibition dedicated to engineer behind Sydney Opera House opens at V&A Museum
19th June 2016

A new exhibition at the V&A is celebrating one of the greatest engineers of the 20th century, Ove  Arup. 

Born in 1895, Ove was a pioneer of his time, his philosophy of total design encouraging a joining of all professions across a project from architects to engineers. 

From the iconic Sydney Opera House to the small but significant Grade 1 listed penguin pool at London Zoo, the engineers legacy is very much visible today. 

Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design is on at the V&A from the June 18 until November 6.
