Description
Developed under the aegis of the U.S. Department of the Interior's National Park Service, Twentieth-Century Building Materials is the first in-depth survey of important construction materials used since 1900. Among the materials covered are glass block, stainless steel, plywood, decorative plastic laminates, linoleum, and gypsum board. Each essay, written by a contributing expert, offers insights into the material's history, manufacturing process, and uses, as well as information about many of the trade names associated with each material. Readers will discover a wealth of information about how these materials deteriorate and how to diagnose their condition, as well as valuable techniques and tips on repair and restoration, bibliographies, and sources for historical and conservation research. Richly illustrated with more than 250 illustrations, including manufacturers' advertisements of the period and a full-color photographic essay, Twentieth-Century Building Materials is an indispensable reference on the history and conservation of modern building materials. It will quickly take its place as a standard architectural reference for preservation professionals.
