Description - Material Matters by Katie Lloyd Thomas

With perspectives gained from a range of disciplines from history, philosophy and design, this book examines the cultural, political, economic, technological and intellectual forces which have shaped material practices in architecture. Going beyond a merely technical analysis, these essays consider building materials as an expression of a variety of influences on their use, fabrication and meaning. Drawing on ideas presented at an international event which took place between 29th March and 3rd April 2004 at the University of East London, this illustrated volume highlights the evolution of materials discourse through practice and theory.
