The textures and elementary forms of constructive systems, materials, and products, are exhibited and used in favor of the architectural concept, giving value to the functions that will be carried out in each building. From showcases made with ceramic tiles to the sifted light created by expanded metal panels, passing through an ethereal polyester coating, Kuma understands the material as an essential component that can make a difference in architecture from the design stages. Next, we present 21 projects where Kengo Kuma masterfully uses construction materials.

The implantation of the school to the east of the plot alongside the new library reinforces this new public alley. HGR Arquitectos uses orange bricks to build Mexico City apartment block. Brickwork panels alternate with gaps up the sides of this housing project in Mexico City, which local firm HGR Arquitectos has organised around a line of patios at the centre.
Named after a leading figure in the Mexican Revolution, the Emiliano Zapata 167 apartment block is located in the sprawling city's south-central Portales Norte neighbourhood. The cuboid building includes 25 residences, split across five storeys and measuring between 82 and 91 square metres – all accessed by a single elevator and a series of staircases up the eastern facade. Bricks were chosen as the prominent material by architect Marcos Hagerman's firm HGR Arquitectos. They form alternating panels across two facades, to partially shade the external corridors used to reach the front doors. The same orange bricks also line the five patios that form the building's core. This Architectural Installation Reconnects With the Senses Through Suspended Bricks.

VTN Architects' Brick Training Complex Will Create Its Own Microclimate Using 'Sky Walks' VTN Architects' Brick Training Complex Will Create Its Own Microclimate Using 'Sky Walks' VTN Architects has revealed plans for a new training complex for Vietnam’s largest mobile network operator located within a training center campus at Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park, 30 km outside of the capital city of Hanoi.
Currently under construction, the Viettel Academy Education Center has been designed as a “cooling microclimate” with short-term residential accommodation aimed at creating a quiet, peaceful space for the company’s new trainees to focus on their studies away from the distraction of the city. The Education Centre consists of 12 programmatically-arranged blocks connected via multiple levels of circulation paths, including an expansive upper story concrete ‘sky walk’ that serves as a park space and helps to shield spaces below from sunlight.
The blocks range in size from 2 stories to 5 stories, accommodating classrooms, meeting rooms, halls, and offices. News via VTN Architects.

Let Light in: 17 Projects Using Polycarbonate Thanks to its strength, lightness, and easy installation, polycarbonate is fast becoming our generation's everyman material. Used to let light in with its translucent properties, buildings built with polycarbonate can appear permeable by day and glow from within by night. Its inherently prefab -nature makes it a strong contender in both small and large projects. Through its use in schools, offices, libraries and even museums, the man-made polymer has earned its place by being as efficient as it is expressive.
