The imagination and the thought of the architects backed by their creative urge find expression in architecture. A careful selection of building materials plays an important role in successful translation of architects' imagination as also in shaping the three dimensional form with req-uired aesthetic flavour. It has been possible to introduce a number of new materials in the sphere of building activ-ities, in addition to conventional natural ones, through a process of continuous research and development. The expl-oitation of a new material demands understanding & imag- ination otherwise, even under favourable circumstances its potential remain unused and unexplored.
