Modern Developments in Surface Treatment

ALTHOUGH the asthetic effect of a building is largely determined by the nature of its surfaces-that is, by the texture and colour of its external walls, the subject of surface treatment does not generally receive in everyday practice the attention which its importance deserves, and in the literature of architecture and building there are only scant references to recent developments in the technique of surface finishes to walls, roofs, and internal divisions of modern buildings.
