2020 was a year like no other — but some things don’t change. Well thought-out designs, robust detailing and timeless materials are as crucial as ever to the creation of great architecture and interiors. Architects are increasingly aware that their best hope for a successful project stems from collaboration with the makers of high quality building products, those that have an intimate knowledge of materials and the fabrication processes behind them.

In this publication, you will find brands and products you can trust to help in the construction of better buildings in the years to come.
