Institution of Structural Engineers honours Paul Fast with 2021 Gold Medal

May 27, 2021

It is a momentous occasion for Fast + Epp as we announce Paul Fast as the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) 2021 Gold Medalist. This is only the second time in the history of the Institution that a Canadian engineer has been granted this prestigious award!

The Institution of Structural Engineers is the world’s largest membership organization dedicated to the art and science of structural engineering. Since its inception in 1922, the Gold Medal has been awarded for exceptional contributions to the advancement of structural engineering.

The 2021 medal has been awarded in recognition of Paul’s world leadership in the design of architecturally expressive structures that incorporate unconventional use of materials, including hybrids of wood, steel and concrete.

Pending travel restrictions, Paul will be giving his Gold Medal address at an Awards ceremony at the Institution’s London UK headquarters in September.
