Materials science increasingly aims not only to understand existing materials but to develop – or in other words to design – entirely new ones. In-depth and consistent methodological approaches for this newly emerging field barely exist. In this context the lecture series aims to lay the methodological foundations for design in materials science.
The lecture series will initially introduce interdisciplinary approaches to design, materials science and cultural science. Then, the focus will be on design methods for materials scientists, ranging from the development of a design vision, over a design exploration phase to parametric design modelling. No previous skills are required.
At the end of the course you will have learned the following skills:
- Development of a design vision through speculation and scenographic techniques
- Analogue and digital exploration of design ideas
- Parametric design modelling in Rhinoceros Grasshopper
The dates of the course are:
- 22., 25. and 26. May 2023: 9.30 till 12.30 and 13.30 till 16.30 on Mondays and Thursdays, 9.30 till 12.30 on Fridays

- 6. July 2023: 10.00 till 13.00
The course takes place in the Biomaterials seminar room at the MPIKG in Golm.
