User Bio

The materiability research network is a community platform, an educational network and an open materials database. It emerged from a joint initiative between the Chair for Computer Aided Architectural Design, ETH Zürich and Interaction Design, Zürich University of the Arts.

Funded in a believe in unrestricted access to information and knowledge it is strongly driven by a community that finds equal inspiration in digital creation and physical making. This platform brings together architects, artists, designers, students, scientists and researchers who share a common fascination with smart, programmable materials and their potential integration into architecture and design to create softer, more dynamic environments.

The website forms a continuously growing database on a wide range of materials, provides in depth instructions and tutorials to self-produce these materials and promotes their assembly in temporary and speculative experimental projects.
