    Aims and Scope

    Materiology is directed at all those who are interested in materials and in working with materials: from architects, production designers, and stylists to artists: a handbook for students and new professionals as well as for experienced professionals, written in a clear, understandable style.
    In four chapters, Materiology offers an overview of the different kinds, processing, and use of materials:
    1. Material families: from wood, metal, and plastics to light.
    2. Material catalog: over 120 material cards, from basic materials to the latest innovations.
    3. Processes: The basics of material processing (spray molds, extrusion, and so on) are presented in a clear manner using numerous diagrams.
    4. Thinking ahead: from new processing and use possibilities to questions concerning environmental protection and virtual reality.
    A prospectus addresses the issues that will be relevant in the future for material development and material use.
    The second edition has a further 18 material cards and focuses on the challenges of sustainability in design and architecture.
