Speaker Bio: Cristobal Correa joined BuroHappold’s New York office in 1998. Throughout his career he has been at the forefront of innovative design in structural engineering. Cristobal has led the design of tension structures, facades, art installations, long span structures, stadiums, and temporary buildings as well as more traditional buildings of concrete and steel. In the process he has acquired experience working collaboratively with architects building in Europe, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and the United States. As project director and design principal, he assures the quality and timeliness of the work produced and is responsible for managing teams of engineers. He is also the director of technology and a professor at the Pratt Institute school of Graduate Architecture and Urban Design (GAUD) and has previously served as a guest critic at a number of universities, including Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Parson’s School of Design, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale. He has presented on his work at numerous international engineering conferences and is an active board member of OHNY (Open House New York) a civic organization in New York city that seeks to engage in a dialogue with fellow New Yorkers about the future of the city and how to design, build, and preserve it.
