    Very welcome to our session during Innovation in Mind September 19, 2013 in Lund, Sweden.

    We continue our series of events aiming towards establishing a long term platform for knowledge sharing between cutting edge material research and design/architecture. See previous event The Material Gap in collaboration with Svensk Form and The Antonia Ax:son Johnson Foundation For Sustainable Development.

    Introducing new materials to the world is a continuous and very complex process we struggle with. But we know for sure that cutting edge materials will gain terrain within professions that makes aesthetic decisions

    Invitation to The Material PointInnovationInMind2013_2
    Session A5: Innovation in Mind • Lund / Sweden 18 – 20 September 2013
    The Material Point/
    Material science meets design and architecture and vice versa
    Place: Ideon Backstage, Lund, Sweden
    Scheelevägen 15, Lund (Alfa 3-6)

    Date: September 19, 2013
    Time: 16.15 –  17.00

    The City of Lund will become a world-class environment for material research with the new facilities European Spallation Source and MAX IV.

    Architects and designers are eager to learn more about cutting edge materials and also need them in order to address our challenges to design our future built environment. But how shall we stage this knowledge sharing and are there any natural “connection points” where the disciplines can meet? The first challenge is: How do we formulate the right questions? It is hard for non-scientists to know what to ask for. The session will start with a series of presentations and then we will open up for a discussion.

    Another underlying question or opportunity is how the creative industry/aesthetics can “make sense” of the research by presenting material know-how in new ways and thus make it accessible for other professionals and the public.
