Blaine Brownell's best-selling Transmaterial series has introduced designers to hundreds of emergent materials that have the potential to transform our built environment. In our new Architecture Brief, Material Strategies, Brownell shows architects how creative applications of these materials achieve such transformations. Chapters based on fundamental material categories examine historical precedents, current opportunities, and future environmental challenges. Case studies featuring detailed illustrations showcase pioneering buildings from today's most forward-thinking architectural firms.


Blaine Brownell is an architect, a researcher of emergent materials, a sustainable building advisor, an educator, and former Fulbright scholar. In addition to authoring the popular book series (and companion website) Transmaterial: A Catalog of Materials That Redefine Our Physical Environment, Brownell is recognized as a leading expert on innovative material technologies for architecture and design. He currently teaches at the University of Minnesota.
