Inspiration from Roma Agrawal

Holly Nicholson, Cohort 2014

 “You can always tell when there is an engineer on the viewing gallery of The Shard,” says Roma Agrawal, “Because instead of admiring the view of London, they’re looking up at the amazing steel structure of the spire.”

Roma is talking about Western Europe’s tallest building, one of the most recognisable towers in the world, and the building she spent six years working on as a structural engineer. She designed the spire and the foundations of The Shard, and her pride in her work shines through her talk.
