This book explores the impact that factors such as digital design, digital fabrication and prototyping have had on built environments. It provides an overview of experimental research, speculative design projects and relevant theories. "Performative Materials in Architecture and Design" addresses the convergence of several significant and fundamental advancements in the ways that materials and environments are designed, evaluated, and experiences within architecture and related disciplines. The emergence of experimental and ultra-performing materials, interactive processing systems, and digital design and fabrication techniques has established an interconnected network or technological inputs that has stimulated the development of materials, assemblies, and systems with performative properties. Providing an overview of representative design projects and relevant theories, this volume illuminates both the interaction of these technologies and the role of materiality in research, design, and practice.
