• Presents some of the world's most important architectural projects recognized for their use of specific materials The selection, preparation and application of materials in architecture represent key points in the design process. A vast array of ad hoc solutions make it possible to confer targeted functions and substantial qualities to structures, surfaces, shells and spaces, and contribute to the definition of the project identity. This book publishes some of the most important projects recognized especially for the specificity of their use of materials. Glass, terracotta, concrete and wood are just a few of the elements that classify their projects. The architectural works demonstrate how the various materials can be interpreted differently from time to time to become truly innovative, while still maintaining their unique characteristics. Ancient and contemporary materials, tradition and innovation follow upon one another throughout the volume, in a sort of atlas of materials. A gallery of photographic images accompanied by drawings and descriptive texts provides full illustration of the buildings, alternating between details and general views, from the basic elements to the complete work as a whole.
