Smart materials are architectural innovations that merge research, development, and function. With their reversible characteristics and amazing ability to respond to stimuli such as light and temperature, they have become a popular resource for architects. Smart Materials presents the development of these materials and describes their use in the contexts of architecture, design, and art. It offers a systematic overview with a detailed discussion of properties, technologies, products, and projects.
