The Arup Journal 2022 Issue 2

The Arup Journal showcases a curated selection of our projects, demonstrating where we have used imagination, technology and rigour to shape a better world. 

In the latest issue read about the vertical extension to 80 M Street SE in Washington D.C. constructed using the first two-hour fire rated mass timber structure in the US. Find out how our Travelling in a Woman’s Shoes study is helping apply a gender lens to sustainable transport system design in Ireland. 

Planning to mitigate the impact of climate change is at the heart of a couple of projects featured in this issue. The sea level rise insights tool explores how uncertainty over future sea level rise can be captured in the economic decision-making process and our multi-hazard climate and disaster risk assessment is helping authorities in Tonga to develop long-term responses to climate change. 

We showcase two unique performance venues shaped by advanced digital design - the Taipei Performing Arts Centre is a stunning new multi-purpose, multi-theatre venue in Taipei City and the Chapel of Sound is a dramatic performance space north-east of Beijing shaped like a natural rock formation. 

Finally, discover how the Martha’s Vineyard Transit Authority microgrid is providing resilient and sustainable energy for its growing fleet of electric buses.
