"'Materials & Applications: Building Something (Beyond) Beautiful: projects, 2002-2013' is a survey of the last 11 years of landscape and architecture experiments at Materials & Applications. Spanning from the first groundbreaking party to the present (and beyond), models, prototypes, installation components, rare images and more reveal a multifaceted inquiry into the potential for new and underutilized approaches to transform the built environment.

From the cutting edge of smart materials, robotics, & computational design; to the underutilized traditional materials of bamboo, felt, and pressure-formed plywood, a handful of the California's top young architects helped cement M&A as a hotbed for innovative ideas."
