About this title


With heightened concern about the use of natural resources, materials for building 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. Materials , a companion to this previous endeavour, is a narrative collection of incidents that record the special place other materials occupy in his architecture. This publication acknowledges the spirit of adventure in researching and applying materials.

About the 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.
