Smart Flexibility: Advanced Materials and Technologies

The Smart Flexibility: Advanced Materials and Technologies exhibition explores new structures and materials that adapt architecture to its environment.

The exhibition is situated on the borderline between matter and structure, investigating the flexibility and intrinsic reactivity of specific materials and advanced technologies.

The harvesting of wind and solar power, electrical and thermal energy generation, perception and adaptation to climatic conditions, to acoustics and lighting environment, user detection and modification of the space through their body, their movements or even their emotions, are the challenges of tomorrow’s spaces and are thus the guidelines of the exhibition.

Projects developed by universities and firms from nine different countries (USA, Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom, Holland, Switzerland, Canada, China and Spain) will be exhibited.
