Design

For the first time, materials technology the single most important agent of change in our designed landscape, from the buildings in which we live and work to the clothes we wear is analysed to show its transformation, volume by volume, of ten creative disciplines. It is being produced in association with Material ConneXion, keeper of the largest materials and processes library in the world.

With a preface by Michele Caniato, the President of Material ConneXion, and an introduction by Allan Chochinov, Chair of the School of Visual Arts MFA in Products of Design Program in New York, this book can be used both as the basis for new course structures and as the authoritative reference for professionals.
