With specially selected worldwide outstanding architectural projects with excellent facade design, Architectural Material & Texture I aims at showing readers how to use different kinds of materials and what kind of texture will different materials present. Focusing on the analysis of design inspirations, material choosing and texture building, the book showcases different characteristics of different projects.
