Maria Mingallon CV

  1. 1. Maria Mingallon Maria Mingallon is a senior structural engineer with a degree in architecture. She uses Nature as a source of knowledge and digital computation as a tool for designing, analysing and fabricating. She graduated in 2005 in Civil Engineering and obtained a scholarship to complete her studies at Imperial College in London. She has worked at ARUP since graduating as a Structural Engineer. Among other projects, she has designed two footbridges leading to the Aquatics Centre by Zaha Hadid Architects at the London 2012 Olympic Park. In 2008 Arup sponsored her master degree in Emergent Technologies and Design at the Architectural Association from which she graduated with Distinction.www.mariamingallon.comProfession She has taught at the Architectural Association as a visiting tutor. She isStructural Engineer currently teaching Advanced Construction at McGill School of Architecture where she was awarded the Gerald Sheff VisitingCurrent Position Professorship in Architecture for outstanding part-time teaching, inSenior Structural Engineer June 2011. From Sep 2010, she directed the ContemPLAY pavilion project (in collaboration with FARMM), which has recently reached completion. She is also part of the reviewing committee for theJoined Arup Symposium in Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design.2005 On December 2010, Maria published her first book: Fiber CompositeYears of Experience Adaptive Systems. On August 2012 she co-authored a chapter titled7 years Bio-inspired Self-Actuating Composite Materials part of the book: Composites and Their Applications.NationalitySpanish Maria is currently co-directing the b-Shack project, a beehive observation shack to be designed and built by graduate students of McGill University, in collaboration with the Facility for ArchitecturalLanguages Research in Media and Mediation, FARMM.Spanish, English, FrenchQualifications2008-09, Msc (Distinction)Emergent Technologies + Design, Specializing in advanced computation and digitalArchitectural Association, London. fabrication, Maria represents Arup successfully in engineering and academia with her past and current works2008, CEng MICE, UK.2005, Chartered Member of theInstitution of Civil Engineers,Spain.
