Future Thinking Materials

Cu­rat­ed by Alexis Har­ri­son, Ma­te­rials Con­sul­tant at Arup, Fu­ture Think­ing high­lights the think­ing that goes in­to the de­vel­op­ment and se­lec­tion of ma­te­rials for ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign. It is a huge­ly pop­u­lar dis­play of emerg­ing ma­te­rials and tech­nol­o­gy in­flu­enc­ing the work of ar­chi­tects & de­sign­ers.
