Edible Materials Lab brings public attention to the nature of materials that define our built environment by exploring resonant relationships between food and design. Through a series of interactive presentations, workshops, and exhibitions, the program demonstrates how material innovation intersects with food production. Co-curated with Jen Wong, the program features work by The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture students as well as a selection of artifacts from the Materials Lab collection. Edible Materials Lab was developed as a part of thinkEAST, a creative placemaking endeavor funded by ArtPlace America.
