Periodically, the Materials Lab assembles curated collections of material products selected from our library of over 29,000 items. These collections are built around significant themes in the built environment. Past themes include material products derived from rapidly renewable grasses, or products that exhibit woven construction. Some collections have been assembled for specific coursework or events; others have been assembled for consumption by a broader audience. The material products included in each collection are a representative selection chosen by the Materials Lab team, and are not meant to be comprehensive.
Requests for curated collections to support coursework can be made by School of Architecture faculty, with advanced notice. Please contact us for further information.
