Opened in 2014, The Material Resource Centre (MRC) in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU) School of Design is a place to explore more than 2,500 materials representing current trends in design, materials research and productions from all over the world. It is where all staff, students and alumni of the HK PolyU, and university partners discover new interesting materials and related technologies that can lead to new sources of inspiration and creativity. Material innovation has become a game changer in the creative and design fields, and the growing library of material solutions and its influence on the next generation of designers is a source of great pride for the university.
