Arthur Mamou-Mani Dezeen Day

Arthur Mamou-Mani to speak about post-plastic materials at Dezeen Day

Architect Arthur Mamou-Mani will speak at Dezeen Day on 30 October about future materials and designing without plastic.

The French architect and director of Mamou-Mani Architects will take part in a discussion about post-plastic materials.

Based in London, Mamou-Mani specialises in digital fabrication, parametric design and advanced bioplastics.

He designed the spectacular timber Temple Galaxia at Burning Man in 2018, becoming the first non-American designer to create the festival's centrepiece.

Earlier this year he created a 3D-printed bioplastic installation for fashion brand COS that explored lightweight architecture made entirely of natural materials.

In a video filmed by Dezeen at the installation, Mamou-Mani discussed how bioplastics could create structures that could be composted after use, and which could help reduce the need for fossil-fuel plastics.

Aged 36, Mamou-Mani lectures at the University of Westminster and runs digital fabrication laboratory Fabpub.

Dezeen Day takes place at BFI Southbank in central London on 30 October. The international conference aims to set the agenda for architecture and design and will discuss topics including design education, future cities and the circular economy.
