Harry is deeply involved with the design processes at Structurflex and his multidisciplinary input helps us to meld brave design concepts with the practicalities of robust engineering. Watching progress from the drawing board to launch day is a satisfying experience for Harry, as is promoting the extraordinary versatility of tension membrane structures.
Before joining Structurflex, Harry ran his own design consultancy and achieved a degree of national fame for a solar energy design. He holds a postgraduate MTS Diploma in Building Techniques (Amsterdam) and a Diploma Architect IVA SBA (Utrecht). Harry regularly lectures on the use of tension membranes in architecture.
