A panel talk exploring – materials – the unsung heroes that bridge the gap between vision and reality. What determines the functionality, durability, and environmental impact of a product? The future of design and product development hinges on making conscientious decisions about the materials we employ.
In today's world of architecture, there's a prevailing focus on architects and the aesthetics of buildings. These entities are often celebrated while the impact of the materials within walls and structures tends to be overlooked. It's time to shift our attention to the critical role that material plays in shaping the sustainability and future of architecture.
