Editorial Reviews

Review

"During the past decade a shift occurred that meant that students were often building things rather than modeling them. The first generation that took on that role have set up practices that retroactively begin to re-define education. Michael Meredith and Gail Borden have assembled many of this generation's work and give coherence to this still emerging context. This is work on material qualities and at times capabilities but perhaps more accurately it reveals a still nascent but deeply important new comfort with fabrication, construction and the complexity of material as it is embedded within a range of demands from finance to structural performance."

Michael Bell, Columbia University, USA

"Matter: Material Processes in Architectural Production is likely to find its way onto many desks in architecture schools; expansive and well organized, Meredith and Borden have provided a critical structure that gives the book depth that other surveys cannot manage. The compilation of case studies includes iterations and outtakes that demonstrate the intensity of the research in material theory. But the book is not simply a glimpse at what the "next generation" has been up to. The real value of Matter―the reason why the rest of us should own a copy―is that it documents the extent which digital practice is influencing mainstream practice and maps a future in which architects regain control over the process of building."

Kevin Daly, Daly Genik Architects, USA

Well it's still readable, but the problem is this digital book is unnumbered pages, you have to rely to the contents or index to find your subject. I rather buy the book if I know this problem would come up, but digital book is fine.
