Patkau Architects: Material Operations reveals the architectural philosophy and techniques that drive the firm's extraordinary constructions. Working directly with materials'bending them, breaking them, feeling their texture, mass, and strength provides a depth of understanding that visual observation alone cannot. The firm's creations demonstrate how attending to and playing with specific materials yields a refreshed and expanded perspective on the possible. Patkau Architects: Material Operations investigates how the qualities of commonly available construction materials and unconventional techniques produce buildable, expressive forms with inherent structural capacities and evocative identities.
