What’s the Matter Materiality and Materialism at the Age of Computation, International Conference, COAC, ETSAB, ETSAV, Barcelona, September 4-5-6, 2014

Justin Dirrenberger


Justin Dirrenberger is a materials scientist and Associate Professor of metallurgy at CNAM in Paris. In 2012, he completed a PhD thesis on the mechanics of architectured materials at Ecole des Mines de Paris. In 2013, he collaborated with EZCT Architecture & Design Research for Archilab, as a materials processing and structural engineering consultant. Recently, he initiated a graduate program on materials & additive manufacturing in Paris, open to both engineering and architecture students. He is leading the DEMOCRITE research project, funded by heSam Université, between CNAM, Arts et Métiers-ParisTech, ENSA Paris-Malaquais, ENSCI-Les Ateliers, and INRIA, aiming at developing additive manufacturing at the architectural scale. His research interests are related to the morphological structures of matter at different scales within materials. He is particularly involved in the design, modelling, simulation, optimisation, and processing of architectured materials, which result from the unholy alliance between metallurgy, mechanics, and geometry.
