Architecture professors Rashida Ng and Sneha Patel’s recently released book, Performative Materials in Architecture and Design, considers the confluence of innovations in areas of materials science, digital fabrication techniques, computational technologies, and interactive media. Emerging from a symposium hosted by Tyler’s Architecture Department in October 2010 entitled INPUT_OUTPUT: Adaptive Materials and Mediated Environments, the book addresses the convergence of several significant and fundamental advancements in the ways that materials and environments are designed, evaluated, and experienced within architecture and related disciplines. As an extension of the INPUT_OUTPUT events, this book presents a multiplicity of perspectives from researchers and professionals whose work is conducted beyond the traditional paradigm of architectural practice and includes a series of essays, six interviews, and over thirty projects.
