Harder, lighter, faster, stronger

experts explore how to push boundaries through material revolution


Discover how the essential materials of building can perform in new ways that challenge old physics.

Innovation is taking place from molecular level upwards, going back in time as well as forward. From advances in steel to the rediscovery and extension of how we build with stone, this set of talks and panel discussion will invite you to rethink the first principles of making structures. What’s at stake are buildings that can push form and function more efficiently.
