Description

Whether luminous wallpaper, curtains that produce electricity, or self-cleaning windowpanes, more than ever before innovations in surface technologies are influencing and will continue to revolutionise the use of materials in architecture, interior design, and design.The new smart surfaces expand considerably design possibilities for architects and designers. Their use leads to new typologies and concepts that can also do justice to changes in expectations for buildings and design.The impression we have of a building or an object is increasingly determined by its surface qualities. Designers are thus confronted anew with the question of "appropriate materials" when dealing with smart surfaces.Smart Surfaces brings these design fields into the creative focus of planners and designers, and emphasises concrete possibilities for applications. Planning fundamentals, including cost-benefit analyses, and questions related to building, including details of constructions, are presented in a clear and intelligible way. The various materials are introduced and their potentials assessed. Smart Surfaces not only offers a good overview of the themes but also provides inspiration for making use of these new surfaces.A book for everyone who wishes to be inspired by the possibilities for innovative surface technologies.
