W5 | Design<>Materials: 2D, 3D & 4D
By Materfad

Materfad, the Barcelona Material Center, invites you to explore the various dimensions of materials: 2D, 3D and, the one referred to time: 4D. We will delve into the limitless relationships between materials and creativity, between science and philosophy, from ideas to reality.

A reflection and contact with innovative materials based on Materfad’s 15 years of constant dedication to materials science research, samples scouting and collection. We will discuss and explore their incredible potential, redesign aspects of what we know so that we may expand our capacity to design and create.

Workshop facilitator: Robert Thompson, Materfad’s scientific director.
