1200, Sensory Materials
Materials are the flesh and bones of objects and buildings. Plastic, metal, ceramic, and glass have distinct qualities of hardness, roughness, and shine. A material's ability to conduct heat or trap air makes it feel warm or cool to touch. Textures speak to the eye as well as to the skin, enriching surfaces with real or simulated depth.
