Abstract

"Almost every industry in the world has benefited from the invention of plastics, but it is only in the recent past that they have begun to be appreciated as architectural materials in their own right. Plastics are quickly becoming one of the most ubiquitous materials in construction and have the potential to reshape the roles of architects and engineers, as well as the construction industry at large. As a building material, plastic allows for easily molded and formed shapes, leading to increasingly malleable design processes. Despite being the most deeply engineered building materials today, plastics are still in the nascent stages of understanding in terms of their potential applications and uses. In Permanent Change an interdisciplinary group of architects, historians, theorists, and engineers collectively explore the past, present, and future possibilities of this innovative building material"-- "While plastics are perhaps the most deeply engineered building materials today, we are still in the nascent stages of understanding their potential applications and uses. Permanent Change sheds new light on these materials and their implications for the fields of architecture and engineering. Materials that once forecast easily molded shapes have become a permanent measure and control point in design. Permanent Change is the fourth in the series Columbia Books on Materials and Architecture"--

Abstract

Advanced materials developed with better performance than traditional ones, such as ‘power- generating and breathing’ membrane, ‘self-cleaning’ carbon fibre structure and energy-saving photovoltaic panel, have found their way into architecture. The book covers a wide range of state-of-the-art materials and discusses their application and future development in architectural design. As a practical referential book with dozens of exemplary projects, it provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of the current application of advanced materials in architecture.

Abstract

Multi-material design, which has been utilized with great success for a long time for example in vehicle manufacturing or aerospace engineering, could also open up completely new possibilities in architecture. Significant amounts of energy, resources, and material could be saved and the use of multi-material 3D printers could revolutionize the design process and bring forth a new aesthetic. Mixed Matters summarizes for the first time the current status of research about multi-material design in architecture-based on a symposium at the AA School of Architecture in London. Contributions by leading architects, designers, scientists, and theorists from renowned institutions and practices-including Zaha Hadid Architects, the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design at the University of Stuttgart and the Harvard Graduate School of Design-explore the fascinating possibilities that this game-changing multi-material shift will bring about for architecture.
