Full Summary:

THE CRYSTAL PALACE, LONDON 1851

Join us for a half-day symposium on this extraordinary building erected to house the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London. Its disruptive design caused quite a stir and the construction procedures used to complete it in months were well ahead of their time.

Save the date and come listen to eight Georgia tech speakers from several colleges and schools talk about why it was built, the designers and builders, the exhibits, its structure and internal environment and the innovative approach to the construction logistics. There will be a musical interlude.
