MATERIAL INNOVATION is an ambitious new series identifying and examining the new and innovative materials that are transforming art, design and technology practice.

Clearly structured and illustrated with carefully selected images throughout, this book will connect material to reader and will inspire both stents and professionals to pursue the optimal material for each specific application.

This volume focuses on specific categories of materials – glass and ceramic, altered naturals, high-performance composites, digitally fabricated metals and polymer films – applied to an extensive range of projects, from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision to the Ordos Art and City Museum in Mongolia. Seven specially commissioned ‘visual narratives’ by such architects as Zaha Hadid are also incled.

The series is being produced in association with Material ConneXion, a materials consultancy agency with unparalleled expertise in innovative and sustainable materials. Its materials library of advanced, innovative and sustainable materials and processes is the largest of its kind in the world.

With a preface by George M. Beylerian, the founder of Material ConneXion, and an introduction by Gail Peter Borden, the head of Architecture at the University of Southern California, the texts are authoritative and yet also accessible.

Andrew H. Dent, Ph.D., Vice President of Library and Materials Research at Material ConneXion, leads a team of material experts to solve design challenges and help companies develop the products of tomorrow. Leslie Sherr has written extensively about architecture, design and gardens. As a brand strategist, she has worked for several leading communication design firms, most recently C&G Partners.
