Leaf Spring - UPC Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – Barcelona (ES) ETSAV Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura del Vallès CODA Barcelona Tech – LiTA Laboratori d’Innovació i Tecnologia en Arquitectura

The “Smart Flexibility: Advanced Materials and Technologies” exhibition is the result of the ongoing technological surveillance task of Materfad, the Materials Centre of Barcelona. Materfad seeks to explore the current capabilities provided by certain structures and materials to raise awareness and adapt architecture to its environment.

 

These contemporary works and projects associated with materials, sensitive systems and articulated mediums allow us to imagine the functionalities that can be made available, from smart and flexible architecture to a reactive garment.

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