The International fib Symposium on Conceptual Design of Structures 2021, which is planned for September 16-18 2021, will follow an innovative hybrid in-person/online format.

The in-person events will take place at the Attisholz Areal, close to the city of Solothurn (Switzerland). This reconverted industrial venue, which was originally used as a cellulose factory, witnesses the tremendous architectural potential for reuse of existing structures. For more information on the venue and its access, please check here.

Please note that the symposium will be held entirely online, on the same dates, if restrictions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic will make this necessary.
