Rashida Ng and Sneha Patel: Trajectories of Performative Materials
Event at Temple University October 30 - 6:00pm
The emergence of experimental and ultraperforming materials, digital design and fabrication techniques, and interactive processing systems has established an interconnected network of technological inputs that has stimulated the development of materials, assemblies, and systems with performative properties.  Providing an overview of representative design projects and relevant theories, Temple Architecture faculty Rashida Ng and Sneha Patel will address the convergence of several significant advancements in the ways that materials and environments are designed, evaluated, and experienced. 
Addressing themes from their recently released book, Performative Materials in Architecture and Design, they will emphasize the value of research as a mode of design inquiry. The breadth of the work suggests a future in which the reductive dichotomies that commonly define the discipline - such as inside and outside, natural and constructed, technical and poetic, even digital and analog - can be matured, redefined, and less distanced.
