Here, we share with you links to relevant resources from the world of materials, circular design and sustainability. Also listed here, will be links to events, webinars, design competitions and educational opportunities for you–each of which we are made aware of through MaterialDriven's cross-pollination with research entities and educational initiatives such as the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute , the Healthy Materials Lab at the Parsons School of Design, and the Circular Economy Club.
Can we, as designers and architects make better material choices, as we set out to build products and spaces? Materials that contribute to well-being, health, and impact the environment in the right ways?
The Healthy Materials Lab of the Parsons School of Design offers a plethora of resources and opportunities in this realm of healthier, affordable and more responsible materials. Whether it is information on the next generation of materials, access to standards, case-studies, as well as demonstrations and materials libraries, or relevant competitions and events.
Do explore their website and resources, as we continue dig deep into the need for 'Healthy Materials', and document the vital resources and dialogues being generated at the Healthy Materials Lab here on Materialdriven.
