Material Alchemy enlists the help of luminaries from the world of science, technology, and design showcases new responses to material innovation. It provides key insights into how material will be utilised to shape our future environments.
Unlike existing publications that singularly examine and showcase materials from an industrial and technical standpoint for commercial application, this publication explores materials from a conceptual, historical and narrative point of view.
Exploring key topics such as synthetic biology, how designers and scientists are designing with living matter, utilising the laboratory as a means to cultivate and grow new materials and how new technologies such as 3D printing are revolutionising the manufacturing industry.
The book showcases the work of technologists and artisans and how these collaborative partnerships are evolving to redefine materiality in the 21st century.
