    Invitation Material Gap 2013

    We continue our series of events aiming towards establishing a long term platform for knowledge sharing between cutting edge material research and design/architecture. Material research dissolves all categories we have grown accustomed to such as; tree, steel, glass, etc. This is an enormous challenge and a necessary opportunity for us to deal with sustainability issues more in tune with processes in nature. Ask any plant and it will give you an insight about millions of years of resilient dynamism.

    This time, in order to find “creative connection points” between the disciplines, we will  initiate a theme that will look into the interaction between inside and outside. We usually call this surface, cladding, skin, cell wall, etc. We are moving towards creating objects, material systems or buildings that will have a more dynamic responsive relationship to their environment. Don’t be alarmed if they soon will be capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring.

    Each participant will give an introduction to their work, followed by a discussion that will touch upon the theme. The event is more about finding out what questions to ask rather than giving the right answers.
