Materials and Meaning in Architecture by Nathaniel Coleman
Interweaving architecture, philosophy and cultural history, Materials and Meaning in Architecture develops a rich exploration of materials and materiality.
Arguing that architecture is primarily experienced by the whole body, rather than chiefly with the eyes, this broad-ranging study shows how the most engaging built works are as tactile as they are sensuous, communicating directly with the bodily senses, especially touch.
It explores the theme of 'material imagination' and the power of establishing 'place identity' in an architect's work, to consider the enduring expressive possibilities of material use in architecture.
