Dear Er Vivek,

Very interesting article about Prof. Jörg and Mike Schlaich. though I have met and heard senior Prof. Jörg Schlaich, till now I have not heard Prof. Mike's lecturers.

Prof. Jörg Schlaish contributions are enormous and his work on light weight structures, Strut-and-tie models of concrete structures and  energy structures are really superb. He is one of the many great professors of our era, who deserves a prize similar to  'Nobel prize'.

Once again thanks for the info.
