Bringing together a panel of international speakers from the field of polymer science & engineering, textile design & architecture, this seminar will explore the potential of shape-morphing textiles for the home. With the intention to encourage cross-disciplinary dialogue between science & design, the seminar will discuss the opportunities and challenges of shape-morphing technologies while investigating their design perspective & stakes. A particular emphasize will be given to the question of how responsive polymer technologies can merge with fabric to design soft architectural membranes for resilient spaces.
Royal Academy of Fines Arts, School of Architecture, Philip de Langes Allé 10, 1435 Copenhagen
