Basics Interior Architecture 05: Texture + Materials
Basics Interior Architecture 05: Texture + Materials forms an inspiring introduction to many of the materials currently used in the design of interior spaces.
The book explores the choice and use of materials and evaluates the effects of these choices on a space, discussing topics such as light, termperature, acoustics and general atmosphere.
Each chapter assesses a single material, with its inherent flaws and individual qualities, and places it in its historical, geographical and cultural context. Readers are encouraged to consider the sustainability of each material and its future use, and text is accompanied by both historical and contemporary case studies.
