In funktional und technologisch anspruchsvollen und innovativen Gebäudeentwürfen hat die Verwendung von ETFE-Folien in jüngster Zeit große Bedeutung erlangt. Dieses Folienmaterial ist von erstaunlicher Dünnheit bei enormer Reißfestigkeit und ist zum Teil leichter als die Luft, die es umschließt. Bekannt geworden ist das Material vor allem durch das Eden Project von Nicholas Grimshaw und die Allianz Arena von Herzog & de Meuron. Derzeit im Bau ist das spektakuläre Schwimmstadion für die Olympischen Spiele 2008 in Beijing – die bislang weltweit größte ETFE-Struktur. Das Buch ist als fundiertes Grundlagenwerk konzipiert, das sowohl Materialeigenschaften wie technologische und konstruktive Verwendungsmöglichkeiten grundsätzlich und umfassend vermittelt. Ausführlich geht die Autorin auf die Spezifika von ETFE in Bezug auf Lichtdurchlässigkeit, Dämmeigenschaften, Akustik, Brandschutz und ökologische Verträglichkeit ein. Ebenso stellt sie anhand von zahlreichen Projektbeispielen Entwurfslösungen vor.
