Jan 26-27: MTRL2020 in Cincinnati (FREE!)

The University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (UC-DAAP) is holding a very special event at the end of the month entitled MTRL2020: Envisioning Innovative Materials Application. The program has been built for students and educators, but will be a fantastic learning opportunity for practicing professionals as well:

For creative people in the 21st century, understanding emerging and innovative new materials is a core necessity. MTRL 2020 is an event centered in providing the students and faculty of the University of Cincinnati as well as others in the community a common forum within which to achieve that understanding. With expert speakers in various fields of materials research, workshops, and a roundtable discussion, the three-day event seeks to heighten the level of awareness to the importance of materials knowledge across the design disciplines and the inter-relation of these materials with outside disciplines.

The event will take place from 1/25-1/27, and is comprised of guest lectures, breakout sessions, a roundtable discussion, and a gallery show of innovative materials samples on campus which runs from January 16 to the end of the month. And what an impressive collection of speakers:

  • Michelle Addington, Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design at the Yale School of Architecture
  • Inna Alesina, Faculty member of Towson University’s ID department
  • Emiliano Godoy, of design firm Godoylab, and design director of the furniture manufacturer Pirwi
  • Chris Lefteri, long-time IDSAMP blog friend and materials evangelist

Here’s the best part: Registration is 100% free of charge and anyone is welcome to attend. Definitley worth checking out.
