A new exhibition featuring translucent polymers, glass, and even concrete samples is on display outside the Materials Library! Showcasing a selection of the innovative and award-winning materials contained within the Materials Library, this exhibit is meant to spark imagination and creativity - each material is showcased for its unique ability to transmit and refract light. Explore how these materials have been utilized in recent architecture projects, and think of the potential they might have for your future projects!


About the Materials Library
“The CCA Materials Library is an interdisciplinary space where students explore texture and engage imagination. Within its walls, fashion students envision constructing purses from heavy-duty conveyor belt textiles. Film students see high-performance sailcloth and imagine large-scale video projection screens. The idea is to inspire through tactile experimentation, and it's a pretty awesome place.” Jake Sollins, CCA Alum, former Materials Library Technician

In development since 1999, the Materials Library was funded by three major grants from the George Frederick Jewett Foundation. Contact Joseph Angelo, joseph.angelo@cca.edu, for an appointment outside regular hours, or to schedule a class visit.
