Materials for Architecture returns with innovation at its core

Following on from its 2017 debut, Materials for Architecture will return to the ILEC Conference Centre, London from 25-26 April 2018. Once again the event will combine a confer- ence programme, exhibition, CPD seminars, material galleries and evening reception. Innovation will
be a clear theme across every part of the event.

With topics including responsive building skins, rammed earth construction, 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 archi- tecture practices, engineering firms, academia 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.
