Description

Nanotechnology is widely regarded as one of the21st centurys key technologies, and its economic importance is sharply on the rise. In architecture and the construction industry it has potentials that are already usable today, especially the coating of surfaces to lend them functional characteristics such as increased tensile strength, self-cleaning capacity, fire resistance, and others. In this book, architects, interior designers, and designers will find an introduction to the scientific background specifically tailored to their needs. They will also encounter a critical discussion of the advantages and limits of the technology, and above all a comprehensive presentation of16 characteristics and functions of nanomaterials that are especially relevant for building and design, illustrated by numerous international project examples.
