This major publication is the first on the market to come close to a real sample library of architectural surface materials. Based on scientific research, Skins for Buildings catalogues 250 different surface materials in eight families: wood, natural stone, kiln-fired artificial stone, unfired artificial stone, metal, plastics, glass and future materials such as composites and smart materials. Each family is subdivided into pure materials, additives and composite materials and treatments.
