Item description for Houses & Materials: Elements on Architecture by Cristina Paredes...
The materials used in the construction of single-family residences are increasingly important and on many occasions become the focal point of the construction. Advances in the composition, fabrication and application of materials allows for the creation of structures and forms that were unthinkable just a few decades ago. This volume contains chapters that display residences constructed using materials like metal, glass, wood, stone or concrete. The singularity of these homes is marked by the predominant use of one material, which in turn is linked with the original concept of the house. This book shows today s trends in the use of these materials without forgetting their applications in the field of interior design and decoration.
