Book description from publisher Thames & Hudson:
MATERIAL INNOVATION is an ambitious new series identifying and examining the new and innovative materials that are transforming art, design and technology practice
Clearly structured and illustrated with carefully selected images throughout, this book will connect material to reader and will inspire both students and professionals to pursue the optimal material for each specific application.
This volume focuses on specific categories of materials – glass and ceramic, altered naturals, high-performance composites, digitally fabricated metals and polymer films – applied to an extensive range of projects, from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision to the Ordos Art and City Museum in Mongolia. Seven specially commissioned ‘visual narratives’ by such architects as Zaha Hadid are also included.
