Picking materials is no longer a simple decision based on the design principles of form, colour and function. 
It is a complex web of strategies that requires navigating information and people.
It requires an understanding of regulations, standards and technical specifications and design in order to create healthy built environments that are beautiful and sustainable.
The intent of this presentation is to demystify material selections and provide a clear path of decision making by defining the new language of materials.
