Descripción

Could materials define the way our future is built? Understanding new materials in order to create new possibilities.

The study of materials is a remarkable driving force behind innovation, which opens up a range of practically endless possibilities. Both new advanced materials as well as new uses of conventional materials provide alternative solutions and new ways for socio-economic development, which will certainly have a great impact on our future.

Design through New Materials aims to provide a working knowledge and active mastery of new materials as agents in innovation and understand their current and future roles in design, sustainability and industry.

The contents and methodology of the course allow for experiencing both materials theory and material hands-on practice; to envision innovation from research to industry, from speculative to applied projects, and to adopt a scientific, creative and multidisciplinary attitude on the field.

The programme sustains practical workshops as well as up-to-date insights from relevant lecturers and visits to leading materials innovation hubs and material-related industries. Our working spaces are both ELISAVA and Materfad, our innovative materials library located at the Barcelona Design Hub, while collaborating simultaneously with multiple institutions and universities involved with related materials innovation and material-driven design in Europe, to strengthen networks and facilitate partnerships.

The applied professional orientation of the master involves developing a final master project with a focus on sustainability, innovation and near-future inspired solutions.
