Waterloo Bridge Sculpture Competition Outline. Art meets Engineering. In September 2017 a national competition will be launched to challenge students to come up with a sculpture design that will be showcased on one of the four plinths of the Waterloo Bridge in London at the Thames Festival in September 2018. The competition will be based on the history of the Waterloo Bridge which was built by women during WW2, and the history of the plinth sculpture competition that took place in the late 1940s but which didn't result in a winning sculpture being commissioned, despite some iconic designs being produced by the likes of Barbara Hepworth. The competition will draw on this history and challenge students to use 3d printing to produce models of their sculptures that pay tribute to the work of women engineers and technicians during the two world wars. This session will outline the competition and inspire the delegates to get involved.
