Summary

This analytical catalog of architectural precedent is the first to focus on materiality. By diagramming significant architectural projects through their material expression, Material Precedent guides the reader through material application in new designs.By cataloging and comparing the conventional concepts behind modern building science -- structure, form, effect, detail, sustainability, and performance -- one can dissect the architecture of the buildings and master material use.Using two colors throughout with crisp, clear line drawings, anyone interested in 20th-Century architecture will be captivated by the graphic presentation.
