MEET THE INNOVATORS
Which (building) materials can we make from ‘waste’, what are the latest ‘plant-based’ materials that I can use for my next project, which products are made from 100% recycled material, has the timber construction revolution really started already? MaterialDistrict Utrecht gives you answers to all these questions and is the only annual event in the Netherlands that brings together material manufacturers and specifiers of materials from all sectors of spatial design.
With presentations by 125 manufacturers, start-ups and designers, exhibitions featuring the latest materials and a line-up of 50 inspiring speakers, the 16th edition of MaterialDistrict Utrecht will take place from 8 to 10 March 2023 in Werkspoorkathedraal, Utrecht.
MATERIALDISTRICT INNOVATION FUND
This year, more exhibitors than ever are showing (material) innovations within the themes of Circularity, Wellbeing and Energy Transition, a direct result of the MaterialDistrict Innovation Fund established by MaterialDistrict in 2019. Startups and designers can receive a subsidy from the fund for their exhibition participation. An independent advisory committee plays an important role in scouting startups and assessing grant applications.
All 250 selected materials from the annual exhibition fall within one or more of the three sustainability themes.
HIGHLIGHTS LECTURE PROGRAMME
MaterialDistrict Utrecht is known for its high-profile lecture programme in which renowned (inter)national architects, scientists, designers and other experts share the latest developments in the field of materials with the public.
