Book Description

A thorough analysis of the nature and use of various building materials, including glazed tile, glass, metal, wood and brick With heightened concern about the use of natural resources, materials for buildings 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. 'A Material Life,' companion title, examines the special place other materials occupy in his architecture. This publication acknowledges the spirit of adventure in researching and applying materials. AUTHOR: Malcolm Holzman, FAIA, is a founding partner of Holzman Moss Architecture. During four decades of practice he has designed a wide variety of memorable spaces across the USA. His use of forms, patterns, colours, textures and qualities of light, capture the richness of human activity in buildings of singular character.
