Matter

Materials – and their alchemical transformations through construction – have long been the subject of intense study and thoughtful deliberation by practitioners and researchers. This issue asks: How are current material investigations responding to rapid climate change and the imperative for sustainability? What methodologies are researchers using to explore and test materials? How are designers, material scientists, and others engaging in material innovation, developing patents, and influencing business practices? How are emergent materials and cyber-physical processes altering the arc of architecture and design?
