“Material Performances” exhibition featuring work of the Material Performance Studio, Fall 2013,  at Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

The exhibition reveals a new understanding of the material in architecture that may enable a new concept of materiality in our society. These projects explore “the notion of material performance, its manifold and its deep interrelations with technology, biology and culture as a central field of architectural inquiry”.  This approach is achievable through advances in the design computation, material computation and technologies of materialization.

These project follow a deign philosophy in which designer engage material into design processes as an active participants in form generation rather than being imposed to a predefined form. the exploration seeks new material cultures within the context of the ever accelerating integrative technologies of design computation and robotic fabrication, with a particular focus on advanced fiber composite materials.
