Material Resource Centre

The Material Resource Centre (MRC) of PolyU Design, one of the participants of the Annual Show, is a place to explore materials representing current trends in design, materials research and productions from all over the world. It welcomes visitors from the general public to discover new interesting materials and related technologies that can lead to new sources of inspiration and creativity. This year, the MRC is presenting a series of interesting activities during the Annual Show.
