"More than 120 leading international architectural interior, and industrial design firms explore and interpret the most innovative building and design materials available today....The object of this project was to record each architect or designers's ideas for the meaterial at hand--be in recycled, found or specially developed by industrial designers--and to demonstrate the possibilities it presented. Each created a 30-inch-square collage panel--and the resulting images provide a stunning glimpse into the ways and means by which some of the most useful and beautiful aspects of our daily lives have been, and will continue to be, created."

Materials include crushed copper foil, aluminum sheeting, ash veneer, corrugated laminate, aluminum rod w/ machined ends, high-density polyurethane from recycled milk jugs, syndecrete, aniline-dyed oak, sintered metal, etc.     [Book ID # 1500]
