Transmaterial 3 follows the same format and philosophy of Transmaterial and Transmaterial 2 by providing the latest information on the most intriguing new materials that have been made available over the last few years. Despite the recent explosion in material innovations, architects and design professionals lack carefully edited sources for inspirational and cutting-edge materials. Transmaterial 3 seeks to do what massive, conventional catalog systems cannot, which is to provide information about only the latest, most intriguing materials in a clear and concise format, organized according to emerging industry trends. Like the first two books, Transmaterial 3 is written to expose a wider audience to current trends in architecture and design and, in turn, to increase advocacy regarding making positive influences on our physical environment. In addition to providing a broad synopsis of the state of technological advances in materials today, TM3 will showcase: bull; New developments in the field of biopolymers and various agriculturally-derived products, demonstrating a profound interest in the so-called carbohydrate economy bull; Biomimetic products, systems, and processes that seek to emulate natural examples, including low embodied-energy and biochemically-manufactured products, "grown" materials, and nano-scale marvels bull; Renewable energy technologies that are increasingly integrated into building surfaces and systems bull; A dramatic increase in "second-life" materials derived from repurposed waste bull; Responsive, interactive, and transformational digital interfaces that harness pervasive communication networks and = are powered by low-energy illumination sources
