Today, new materials for construction and interior design are appearing at such a rate that it is almost impossible to keep up-to-date with what is available and how it can be best put to use. Materials whose properties can reduce a project's environmental impact, for example, or which make it more affordable or more versatile are used by surprisingly few architects and designers, while the vast majority are restricted to old forms and conventional construction methods. New Materials in Architecture and Design is a display of what can be achieved with today's wealth of innovative materials. Clearly divided into different categories, the information provided in the book offers architects and designers alike an essential tool for attaining the results that best suit their clients' needs and requirements.
