The selection, preparation and application of materials in architecture represent key decisions in the design process, today as in the past. This book features projects by Archea Associati, a firm of architects and designers founded in Florence in 1988, that demonstrate how materials can be used in innovative ways, while still honouring their traditional characteristics. Glass, terracotta, concrete and wood are just a few of the elements they work with. Examples of ancient and contemporary materials are featured throughout this well-illustrated volume. A gallery of photographic images accompanied by drawings and descriptive texts illustrate each building, alternating between details and general views, from the basic elements to the complete work as a whole.
