The Chair for CAAD launches materiability research network.

The materiability research network is a joint initiative based at the Chair for Computer Aided Architectural Design, ETH Zürich and Interaction Design, Zürich University of the Arts. In an experimental approach we integrate smart materials into architecture and design to create softer, more dynamic environments.

This platform exhibits recent and ongoing projects that were realized as part of our education and research positions. It also forms a continuously growing database, displaying detailed information on various kinds of materials as well as in depth instructions and tutorials to self-produce these materials in a hands-on approach.
