    Material Beyond Materials
    This symposium was this weekend at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. Some interesting presentations and discussions regarding new materials, construction methodologies and fabrication ideas.
    Take a look through the links, lots of interesting information and ideas. All the talks were recorded, not sure if they are going to put them up online or not but they would be worth the watch if so.

    Material Beyond Materials

    Material Beyond Materials:
    A Composite Tectonics Conference on Advanced Materials and Digital Manufacturing

    960 E. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA

    Friday, March 25, 6-8pm
    Saturday, March 26, 10am-5pm

    Fostering direct exchange between architects and companies invested in the field of advanced materials and fabrication technologies, the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) hosts Material beyond Materials—a composite tectonics conference on advanced materials and digital manufacturing.

    Taking place on the SCI-Arc campus in downtown Los Angeles, the two-day forum open to the public and the community at large will explore technological advances in composite materials, innovations in construction, and current design discourse—with some of the most important names in today’s building, fabrication and design industries.

    Material beyond Materials combines progressive presentations in the fields of architecture, the arts, engineering and materials research. Conference participants will present and discuss their most innovative ideas, projects and positions concerning materials, technology and the impact on the architecture and construction disciplines and professions.
