Unusual Structures
Architectural and artistic visions come in all shapes and sizes. Eric Elsesser, one of the founders of Forell | Elsesser, always stressed the importance of what he liked to call “the art of engineering,” and we continue to bring a sense of artistry to structural engineering solutions, especially when working with unusual structures. Having worked with world-renowned architects and sculptors, we know how to customize our approach to match even the most unusual structures out there. If you can dream it up, we can make it a buildable reality.
