Better materials, better buildings


The construction industry is evolving fast and materials are at the forefront of the movement, with R&D pushing them to be tougher, lighter, healthier, and more sustainable. Materials for Architecture explores materials and applications for the built environment.


M


aterials for Architecture will return to the ILEC Conference Centre, London from 25-26 April


2018. Once again it will combine a conference programme, exhibition, CPD seminars, material galleries and evening reception. Innovation will be a clear theme across every part of the event.


Thought-leading conversation Nick Ling, Technical Design Lead at Heatherwick Studio will give the opening address for the event’s conference programme. He has extensive practical and on-site experience and will harness both in his talk, setting the tone for the two-day conference programme which brings together a selection of thought leaders. ‘Supertall timber: how to disrupt the construction sector with timber innovation over 80 storeys’ will see Kevin Flanagan, partner at PLP Architecture, and Dr Michael Ramage, who leads the Centre for Natural Material Innovation at the University of Cambridge, host a collaborative talk on their 80-storey mass timber tower concept for London’s Barbican. Neven Sidor, partner at Grimshaw, and Anthony Morgan, co-founder of the Carbon Free Group, will discuss how a modular building system fabricated from glass composite panels could be a sustainable, long-term solution to housing shortage. Speakers have also been confirmed from architectural practices dRMM, Studio Seilern Architects, and HTA Design plus engineering practices Buro Happold, Ramboll, and more. There will also be speaking contributions from top universities, manufacturers, and industry associations.


ADF APRIL 2018 Hands-on


A diverse pool of exhibitors across an array of material types, from aggregates and bricks, through smart materials, to composites and metals, have been confirmed including Akzo Nobel, Aggregate Industries, Envirograf, and Maria Gasparian Studio.


Other attractions within the floorplan are a CPD seminar space, offering best practice approaches to using the latest products, and tactile materials display areas. All features are designed to provide the construction professional with optimal knowledge and insight to inspire specification choices. The Materials for Architecture Wall will display a selection of globally-sourced materials that break new ground in terms of aesthetics, fabrication, performance, and sustainability. In addition, consultancies MaterialDriven and Material Lab will be on hand to guide individuals to new and exciting material opportunities.


Evening reception An evening reception on Wednesday 25 April will play host to a young researchers forum in which researchers in the field of architectural materials will pitch their ideas to a panel of expert judges. These include Manser Medal winners Cezary Bednarski of Studio Bednarski and Chris Loyn of Loyn + Co Architects, plus Elaine Toogood of the Concrete Centre. Refreshments will be provided to attendees to the evening reception, and the winning proposal will be awarded a prize of £500.


Those attending the event will be able to gain valuable insights on how to apply the latest thinking to materials for architecture, and are guaranteed to come away with inspiration to apply on their projects.
