A Material Life: Adventures & Discoveries in Materials Research
Synopses & Reviews
With heightened concern about the use of natural resources, materials for building are once again at the forefront of discussion. Malcolm Holzman strives to take advantage of the variety of products available, whether time-tested, tired from over-use, relegated to the scrap pile, entirely new or from allied fields. Five years ago in Stonework, Holzman illustrated the unique role that stone plays in making exceptional buildings. Materials, a companion to this previous endeavour, is a narrative collection of incidents that record the special place other materials occupy in his architecture. This publication acknowledges the spirit of adventure in researching and applying materials.
