Title: Towards a Material Ecology
Tue, Feb 19 2013 10:14
New Spring Course Offering at MIT
4.110J / MAS 330J / MAS.S64J DESIGN ACROSS SCALES
INTEGRATIVE DESIGN ACROSS DISCIPLINES, SCALES, AND PROBLEM CONTEXTS
Prof. Neri Oxman / Prof. Meejin Yoon
Inspired by Charles and Ray Eames’ canonical “Powers of Ten”, the course explores the relationship between science and engineering through the lens of Design. It examines how transformations in science and technology have influenced design thinking and vice versa. It offers interdisciplinary tools and methods to represent, model, design and fabricate objects, machines, and systems. Structured as core lectures and lab sessions, the course is organized by “systems” : Design of Information, Design of Fabrication, Design of Intelligence, Design of Play, Design of Organization and Design of Innovation. World-renowned designers, scientists and engineers will contribute with guest lectures. We will design things – material and immaterial; we will learn new computational and fabrication tools along the way; we will develop methodologies for design research of interdisciplinary problems; we will practice what it means to think, live, and breathe Design.

A 3-D printed dress was debuted in the Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 as part of collaboration with fashion designer Iris Van Herpen for her show "Voltage". The 3D printed skirt and cape were produced using Stratasys’ unique Objet Connex multi-material 3D printing technology, which allows a variety of material properties to be printed in a single build. This allowed both hard and soft materials to be incorporated within the design, crucial to the movement and texture of the piece.
