Materials Week #1

Metal: Shape Memory Alloys

Wednesday, 26 July–Sunday, 20 July 2017
Workshops 4–6 pm
Stahlhaus Dessau-Törten
Eintritt frei

Shape memory alloys seem to be able to move on their own accord. For this they use a kind of memory. Which possibilities does this offer? The first Materials Week is dedicated to the exploration of the so-called shape memory effect. Additionally, students of design provide insight into their ways of working and reveal how they integrate the “memory capacity” and the changes of shape of the material in the design process.
