Material Responsibility discusses issues of contemporary material fabrication in context to social, environmental, and construction related challenges. Researchers, designers, and builders assume the mantle of responsibility to address inherited legacies in everyday practices. This event tries to unravel not only assumptions about what and how we build, but also looks to question why, to situate our motivations and impact. In moving away from practices that simply justifies the present moment, the discussion on Material Responsibility aims to identify where our responsibilities lie in the complex global systems and networks that make up our contemporary practice.

Presentations from Mollie Claypool (The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL), Dana Cupkova (Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture), and Achim Menges (University of Stuttgart Institute for Computational Design and Construction), will be followed by a panel discussion with Taubman College faculty.
