Description

Materiality has now become a key theme in the debate on architecture. Marble, brick, steel - the material conveys non-material ideas and, like space, determines the appearance of architecture. For the first time, the book deals with the subject from a historic point of view whilst reflecting current interdisciplinary findings. Examples from Aalto to Zumthor illustrate the aspects of erstwhile and contemporary material concepts.
