CES #362 Advanced Materials Tripartite Series: MATERIALS OF THE FUTURE
Graphene & Self-Healing Concrete
AIA / CES #362 LUH: 1.5 LUs/HSW/SD
The Presentation: The AIA commences its advanced materials lecture series by taking a focused look at Graphene and Self-Healing Concrete. The goal of this presentation is to introduce architects to cutting edge technologies that could have a dramatic impact on the future of architecture and sustainable design. Graphene is a lightweight new material that is one layer of carbon thick – yet stronger than steel. Dr. Toby Gill, Dr. Feng Yan and Dr. Anibal Maury-Ramirez will give us an introduction to the development and potential uses of this advanced new material, the most patented in the world, and the evening will also feature the work of several Hong Kong University architecture graduates who have incorporated advanced materials and sustainable features into their designs. The event will conclude with a panel discussion about the possibilities for the future use of nanotech materials.
