In the Materials section of the Technical area we have added this month's AJ Specification piece on patterned building envelopes, in which Mark Garcia looks at trends in built and lit patterned surface treatments.
Also new to the Materials section is coverage of flooring from AJ Specification:
a pick of the flooring products by Sweden's RAW materials library;
using BubbleDeck, the lightweight structural flooring system;
Architype on choosing green flooring;
Munkenbeck + Marshall looking for 'luxury' flooring beyond the usual palette;
checking out underfloor heating and cooling; and information resources online for flooring.
