Materials for Architecture Returns with Innovation at its Core

Materials for Architecture Header

Following on from it’s 2017 debut, Materials 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, exploring materials for structures, envelope, facades and finishes.

With topics including responsive building skins, high-performance composites, phase-change and unbreakable materials the conference programme for 2018 is set to highlight some of the newest, most innovative themes within the built environment. Speakers will come from major architecture practices, engineering firms, academia, industry, and more.

The exhibition hall will include an Innovation Zone and highly interactive materials display area, while the evening reception will host a competition where participants will present their research into developing construction materials for the future. The competition will be judged by a panel of leading industry figures. The evening will also give entrants, judges and attendees the opportunity to network.
