UNSknowledge curates Architectural Material exhibit at MaterialDistrict

Join the UNSknowledge team at Ahoy Rotterdam as they explore circular and sustainable architectural materials.

Our built environment must be fully circular and energy neutral by the year 2050, posing huge issues and questions to the construction industry. What can this ambition mean for the materials we use? As reusing materials becomes increasingly important, how can we engage with initiatives like the material passport of Madaster and the urban mining initiative from New Horizon?

With a focus on Material Technology, Health, Sustainability and Computation, Ben van Berkel, Filippo Lodi and the UNSknowledge team have curated the material and architectural exhibition at Material District, Rotterdam. By presenting building materials, roofs and facade elements, doors, windows, insulation and finishes, the UNSknowledge team will ask: which materials are circular and how are they best applied?

Alongside the exhibition, on Wednesday, 13 March at 10:45 Filippo Lodi will give a keynote lecture which discusses our products, sustainable strategies, our computational design methods, and other disruptive technologies for the built environment.

MaterialDistrict is the world’s leading match making platform in the field of innovative materials. MaterialDistrict’s value as a high-end materials inspiration source is clear: R&D and design professionals of all industries are using the platform to discover new material solutions.

When: 12 - 14 March 2019
