“I work a little bit like a sculptor. When I start, my first idea for a building is with the material. I believe architecture is about that. It’s not about paper, it’s not about forms. It’s about space and material.” - Peter Zumthor
Over the past several years, ArchDaily has become the main source of inspiration, knowledge, and tools for architects across the US, and it’s precisely for this reason that we are driven to improve our applications and develop new initiatives day after day.
Our goal is to support the work of architects from the start of their first ideas to the development of construction details and the selection of materials, including tiles, ceilings, floors, fixtures, finishes and appliances. To this end, in December of last year, we launched a new version of our Materials Catalog: a tool for searching for materials and products that also offers the ability to directly contact the supplier. Here, you can find suppliers such as Hunter Douglas Contract, Intectural, Alucobond, Equitone and more.
Today, we are pleased to announce our latest innovation: the Materials Newsletter, which will allow our readers to receive the latest news, directly in their inboxes, about the world of construction materials and systems. In addition, we will publish the materials used by architects in the projects that we publish daily, providing you with even more inspiration for your own projects.
* You'll be receiving this Newsletter biweekly, starting on Monday, November 24th.
