Abstract
Stefan J. Medwadowski, IASS President 1991-2000 and Adjunct Professor at the University of California at Berkeley 1958-1989, has had a distinguished design career spanning more than 50 years. The structures he designed are characterized by the conscious effort to define space and fulfill function in an aesthetically pleasing manner. His projects have involved a variety of structural systems, including thin shells in concrete and wood, and spatial or grid systems in steel, concrete, and timber. Notable examples include arenas, churches, footbridges, and telescope supports.
