Pure Plastics by Chris van Uffelen

Book Description

Plastic has moved from a supporting role to being a new star among construction materials. Of the over 50 different types of plastics in existence, each one has something different to offer. It is versatile, light-weight, flexible and moisture resistant; it can be colorful, clear or opaque and practically unbreakable. Plastics are easy to handle, durable and attractive at the same time they are used for whole construction units as well as for selected decorative elements. The recent innovations in this field have inspired designers and architects to experiment with the wondrous properties of plastics. "Pure Plastic" is a richly illustrated volume that features about 60 some of the most impressive projects presenting a creative use of plastic and synthetic composites in latest architecture from all over the world.

With the advent of increased environmental awareness in all areas of life, and the associated implementation strategies, the concept of sustainability has become a driving force of architecture and landscape architecture, both in terms of urban planning and construction. This volume presents a carefully selected range of such works.

Posh & Proud: Interior Design Deluxe by Chris van Uffelen Posh & Proud: Interior Design Deluxe, Hardback (October 2016)

Decadence is fun - especially in architecture. This is not about minimalism and understatement! Quite to the contrary, this velvet-covered volume is a celebration of opulence. Each page presents a balanced and harmonized cornucopia of high-quality interior design concepts.

Beauty of Space: Living in Minimal Style by Chris van Uffelen Beauty of Space: Living in Minimal Style, Hardback (November 2015)

Less is More is one of the most frequently quoted and most influential principles of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It demands abstraction, functionality and clarity. This book features residential designs from around the world that focus on the essence of life, while placing the residents at the center of the work.
