The new publication ‘Ceramic Material Systems in Architecture and Interior Design’, by Martin Bechthold, Nathan King and Anthony Kane (Birkhäuser), addresses the question of progress of ceramic materials in architecture, their origin and upward growth trend. In this work, the authors provide readers with the know-how necessary to develop architectural solutions using ceramic materials, backed up by an exhaustive review of ceramic products and projects.
Martin Bechthold is a professor and director of the collaboration project run by ASCER (Association of Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers) at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD). Nathan King and Anthony Kane are former students of this course and are currently working on this initiative.
The book received the backing of ASCER and Tile of Spain, and features numerous references to Spanish ceramic tile products and works. The book has been published in English and German.
