Mr James Solly
Here East
  • Lecturer in Architecture
  • The Bartlett School of Architecture
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

James is a British engineer, a director at Format Engineers and a Teaching Fellow on the Design for Manufacture Programme at the Bartlett School of Architecture. For the last three years he has been a member of the Innochain Network (ESR08 – Virtual Prototyping FRP) and a Research Associate at the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart. His ongoing PhD research at the ITKE, that started within Innochain, focusses on the development of virtual prototyping strategies for the fabrication by lattice structures formed from fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP). Prior to his Innochain research placement, James worked at Ramboll UK and BuroHappold Engineering. From his work within both academia and practice James is an advocate for collaborative research between these two domains.

Research Summary

James is currently working on his PhD at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design at the University of Stuttgart that focuses on virtual prototyping strategies for the creation of wound composite structures for use in modern architectural applications. 

His research interests lie in the technical application of emerging additive manufacturing techniques to large scale structures. Within this area he is interested in the design techniques that can be utilized in collaboration between engineers and architects that can best make use of the possibilities of these new technologies. 

Teaching Summary

Between 2015 and 2018 James was a lecturer and tutor within the ITECH Masters Programme at the University of Stuttgart. He was a lecturer on the Form and Structures  and Material and Structures seminars, a tutor on the 2016-2017 research pavilion and a masters thesis tutor in 2017 and 2018. 

Currently James is a Teaching Fellow on  the Design For Manufacture and Engineering and Architectural Design masters programmes at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL
