Lightweight, robust, long-lasting, environmentally-friendly, ideal to work with, versatile in design – aluminium possesses all the characteristics that you could wish for in a material.
At the start of the 19th century, large roof surfaces were already being covered with aluminium (for example, San Gioacchion church in Rome). Today too, some of the most exciting structures on earth feature aluminium on the front of buildings. Modern architecture considers aluminium to be the material of the future. This is hardly surprising seeing as it has so many outstanding qualities.
