Materials & Applications is a non-profit organization that produces installations twice yearly and hosts open air discussions, workshops, performances and other public events. We also create outreach programs to educate and inspire property and business owners to make choices that increase the sustainability of their buildings and properties. M&A was created to experiment with public space at a scale proportional to a community, a space that can be understood, worked with, reconfigured and used as a pocket park. M&A is located in front of the studio of Jenna Didier and is a testbed to realize new and important concepts in building.
Materials & Applications (M&A) is a research and exhibition center dedicated to advancing new and underused ideas in art, architecture, and landscape. Our goal is to be a driving force to increase public participation in the built environment by inspiring interest in visitors with their surroundings – while they explore the latest ideas in architectural design and theory on an experiential level. We push the application of materials beyond the limits of typical commercial, residential, and traditional gallery-based projects, towards more flourishing environments.
Jenna Didier is the founding director of M&A. She is an artist primarily concerned with public space and its various opportunities and impacts.
