transmaterial: a research symposium through, across and beyond materials and materiality

Fostering a direct exchange between architects, designers and industry, Monash Art, Design & Architecture (MADA) hosts transmaterial - a research symposium investigating material innovation in the constructed environment.

In parts fuelled by an increased ability and growing sophistication in designing material performance, by the challenges of the material world made manifest in the ecological crisis, and by global economic transformations, such as the shift of manufacturing away from the developed world, questions surrounding materiality, materials and material technologies have recently come under renewed attention. In this are new opportunities for dialogue. transmaterial will provide interfaces between disciplines that will enable dialogues and foster an exchange of knowledge through, across and beyond materials and materiality. transmaterial will connect global issues in materials, technologies and their ramifications with local concerns in manufacturing and making.

Sponsored by the Victorian Endowment for Science, Knowledge and Innovation (VESKI), this symposium brings together international and national thinkers and practitioners from the fields of architecture, engineering and material science. The event will comprise of a series of progressive presentations by invited speakers, which will be followed a chaired panel discussion.
