The online service is a useful tool to find different materials in the field of architecture and urban planning. The website is the result of thorough interdisciplinary research work, done by practising architects and leading scholars in their respective fields and in collaboration with research institutions.

Anyone who is interested in the diversity of materials and their everyday use will find a rewarding resource. With large decriptive images it presents diverse materials and background information about their respective origins and provides details concerning their texture, character and technical features (e.g. quality, applications, processing).
