Basics Interior Architecture 05: Texture + Materials forms an inspiring introduction to many of the materials currently used in the design of interior spaces.
The book explores the choice and use of materials and evaluates the effects of these choices on a space, discussing topics such as light, termperature, acoustics and general atmosphere.
Each chapter assesses a single material, with its inherent flaws and individual qualities, and places it in its historical, geographical and cultural context. Readers are encouraged to consider the sustainability of each material and its future use, and text is accompanied by both historical and contemporary case studies.

Book Description Basics Interior Architecture, 2011. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neu neuware, importqualität, auf lager - The choice and use of materials in interior architecture and interior design is endless but the appropriate choice and correct use by the designer can have the most dramatic or the most subtle of effects. The imaginative and creative use of materials will not only satisfy the functional requirements of the space that we are designing but will also illicit the more abstract, sensual qualities of place that we are hoping to achieve: the atmosphere. The fifth book in AVA Academias Basics Interior Architecture series, Texture + Materials will provide the interior architecture and interior design student with a focussed, readable and informative introduction to many of the materials currently being used in the design of contemporary interior spaces. Each chapter will identify a type of material; outline its appropriate historical context and its cultural and geographical use as well as its inherent qualities and limitations. Historic and contemporary case studies will be presented in order to demonstrate where the material has been used to best effect and each chapter will finish by raising questions regarding the sustainability of the material and its future use. 184 pp. Englisch.
