IRIS Coffee Chat: Material Programming in Architecture

February 7, 2023 /

D. Wood (ICD)


On 7 February 2023, Dylan Wood gave an online talk as part of the IRIS Coffee Chat on "Material Programming in Architecture".


The concept of material programming denotes a method of design in which advanced functions are encoded directly within physical fabrication logic and syntax material systems, often in place of digital controls, sensors, and actuators. At the ICD, material programming is investigated through computational fabrication deployed as innovative methods of form generation (self-shaping manufacturing) and form adaptation (adaptive materials, wearables, and building systems) with a specific focus on the utilization of natural and bio-based materials.
