We would like to cordially invite you to a virtual workshop on »Material as Environmental Device« on 10 September 2020, between 9:00 and 4.30, to be held via Zoom.
The workshop gathers researchers and practitioners from the fields of Architecture, Ecological Anthropology and the Natural Sciences to discuss the status of the material as an active element of environmental design on the basis of past and contemporary buildings and current research in the Cluster »Matters of Activity«. Three thematic sessions—»Materials and Environments«, »Essential Material« and »Active Skins«—focus on different aspects of material activity, addressing design and production techniques, ecological and cultural implications and the prospects of climate-responsive architectures.
Please find more information and the Zoom link on the event webpage:
The workshop is jointly organized by the Cluster projects »Material Form Function« and »Weaving«, and the program can be found below.
Looking forward to a fruitful exchange,
Iva Rešetar, Christiane Sauer und Mareike Stoll
