ABOUT

 

The Material Balance Research Group was started in 2018 within the Politecnico di Milano. The founding principal was to create serious research group to better focus on the relationship between material properties and innovative applications. The group was started, and is still headed, by Professor Ingrid Paoletti who has selected an international group of Doctorate Post-Graduate students and Researchers working on innovation with purpose in architecture, design and society.

 

The group is continually growing and changing whilst opening new avenues of research in projects of application, working with international partners in order to transform exciting ideas into prototypes and experimental demonstrations. We are working on innovative knitting processes for construction, 3D and 4D printing for all sectors, innovative acoustic materials, bioengineered micro-algae as a fluid building substance adaptable to any form and structure, computational design as well as many other material processes.

 

We are open for requests for partnerships between institutions, companies and research groups throughout the world in order to accelerate the transition to a true material balance which has the potential of changing our troubled environment.

OUR MISSION

 

The Anthropocene perspective has led to dealing with the earth in a consumeristic way, opening the path for waste, the shortage of resources and climate change. This perspective is no longer viable. A new delicate but deep approach has to be undertaken in order to modify our habits, which starts from how we live, inhabit, design and build. The Material Balance Research Group is a common ground for innovating our practices in a responsible way , aiming at re-balancing our relationship with the environment.

 

MATERIAL BALANCE EQUATION

INPUT + GENERATION = OUTPUT + CONSUMPTION + ACCUMULATION
