INFOGRAPHIC: Materials in Architecture (A History)

In case you missed it, we're re-publishing this popular post for your material pleasure. Enjoy!

To celebrate AD Materials turning two three (months that is), we decided to dig a bit deeper into the materials we know and love. What's their history? When did they first come to use - and where? How? If you want to know more about the lives - past and present - of concrete, glass, steel, and more, check out our fantastic new infographic after the break!
