CAIRO BOOKS's Description
With heightened concern about the use of natural resources, materials for
building are once again at the forefront of discussion. Malcolm Holzman strives
to take advantage of the variety of products available, whether time-tested,
tired from over-use, relegated to the scrap pile, entirely new or from allied
fields. Five years ago in Stonework , Holzman illustrated the unique role that
stone plays in making exceptional buildings. Materials , a companion to this
previous endeavour, is a narrative collection of incidents that record the
special place other materials occupy in his architecture. This publication
acknowledges the spirit of adventure in researching and applying materials.
