Green Construction Design Workshop
The Institute has launched the Materials and Design Exchange (MaDE), a new
initiative to facilitate the development of design skills to exploit the
benefits of new materials and processes. The Institute, working together
with the DTI, the Design Council, and the Royal College of Art, has
recognised that the needs of designers are quite different from those of
scientists and engineers. The intention of MaDE is to improve communications
and stimulate the exchange of ideas between the materials and design
MaDE will deliver a series of courses, workshops and night-schools on
selected topics aimed specifically at designers. The first in the series is
a workshop on Green Construction which will explore new materials and
processes and will be particularly suitable for designers involved with both
external and internal aspects of construction. This workshop, which is free
of charge, will be held at the Institute's headquarters in London on Tuesday
