Materials Manual is a comprehensive reference manual of building and decorative materials, and finishes. Introducing the properties, conditions, and attributes of a wide range of materials used by architects and interior designers, Materials Manual considers their use in a holistic and integrated manner by explaining how materials contribute to the construction and fabrication of floors, partitions, ceilings, and casework. The reader is guided directly to the options for the location or assembly they are considering to select a material for and learn about the pros and cons of various applications.
