Construction and Materiality


The second book in the Basics Architecture series explores the materials used in construction today: stone and brick, concrete, timber, steel and glass, and composites. Reviewing the history of these materials puts them in context, revealing applications in both historical and contemporary architecture. Each chapter showcases the work of a master architect, such as Frank Lloyd Wright or Louis Kahn, whose work is associated with that material. Projects by such greats as Eric Parry, Caruso St. John, Zaha Hadid, Nicholas Grimshaw Architects, Rem Koolhaas, Norman Foster, Jean Nouvel, dRMM, and more are included.

Practical and inspiring, Basics Architecture: Construction and Materiality is an invaluable resource for students and professionals alike.
