Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The goal of this class is to have the students gain an understanding of materials and processes as they relate to their design practice. Specifically, the teaching will attempt to contextualize the larger, global issues of materials sourcing, use, and disposal; and how those flows impact not only the products we design and our use of them, but the larger environmental picture as well.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

At the end of the teaching, the students should be familiar with the basic families of materials and their sources, as well as the larger geopolitical issues that surround those virgin flows. Students should also become familiar with secondary materials streams, their origins, their mechanics, and their related constraints. Finally, students should become familiar with more recent advances in materials development, along with their opportunities and limitations.


Argomenti trattati

Topics covered could include: Above Ground Mining, AgTech, Biopolymers, Circular Economics, Life Cycle Analysis, Multitalented (not “Smart”) Materials, Rare Earth Elements, Recycling, Synthetic Biology, Waste Management – and possible others.

 


Prerequisiti

Students must have some frame of reference to bring to the course: materials research, art/design practice, engineering, business, and foreign affairs would all be acceptable. The more varied the perspectives, the better for the group.


Modalità di valutazione

Class participation (25%), individual written assignments (35%), group projects (40%).
