CPTitle  Material Revolution : Sustainable and Multi-Purpose Materials for Design and Architecture

Description  “Vases made of algae fibers, cell phone casing of tree bark, coffins of almond shells, mosaics of coconuts and bicycle frames of bamboo.  These are just some for the most striking examples of  a development that will take on a revolutionary character in the near future… It would seem that the classic mechanized understanding of materiality is giving way to a new materials culture, in which materials reveal multi-functional potential: they can be lightweight or dirt repellent, can change color or are retro-reflecting.  But they all share a single purpose: to achieve a more responsible use of our global resources.” (Material Revolution)
