Future matters: the imminent reality of multi-materiality

Professor of Experimental Architecture Rachel Armstrong will be speaking at a symposium at the Architectural Association on 20th February.

Future Matters: The Imminent Reality of Multi-materiality will bring together architects, designers, scientists, material researchers, theorists and futurists in order to discuss what this game-changing multi-material shift will bring about for architecture. The elimination of centuries- old messy building processes, the convergence of disciplines, radical energy, resource and material savings, the re- emergence of theories of continuity and material agency, the rethinking of current design methodologies and an ensuing aesthetic of gradients as opposed to sharp boundaries, are some of the themes to be discussed in the event.
