Item description for Pure Plastic: New Materials for Today's Architecture (Architecture and Materials) by Braun ...
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.
