Description

This new volume in the Material Innovation series focuses on architecture, and features buildings that showcase the innovative use of a particular material. The book explores specific categories of materials glass and ceramic, altered naturals, high-performance composites, digitally fabricated metals and polymer films applied to an extensive range of projects, from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision to the Ordos Art and City Museum in Mongolia. It also includes seven specially commissioned visual narratives by such architects as Zaha Hadid, Steven Holl, Kengo Kuma & Associates and UN Studio. George M. Beylerian, the founder of Material ConneXion, contributes a preface, and Gail Peter Borden, the head of Architecture at the University of Southern California, writes the introduction.
