'Material Wild' at SCIN gallery

The SCIN gallery’s new exhibition offers natural replacements to synthetic materials

Online resource and materials consultancy SCIN have opened a new exhibition on materials ‘cultivated’ in the wild, curated by SCIN principal Annabelle Filer. Displayed in and amongst a clutter of stacked orange boxes, the collection features natural alternatives to common synthetic materials used in architecture.
