                                              VMZINC® solutions and surface aspects contribute to
                                              shaping the identity of the buildings.

                                              In some contexts, zinc is used to strengthen the quali-
                                              ties of vernacular architecture, in others, to play on
                                              contrasts, to create metaphors and enable contextual
                                              insertion, or in others again, to enhance buildings and
                                              give them a certain vibrancy. Such an array of exam-
                                              ples could be a useful source of inspiration for your
                                              future projects.

                                              As you will see, our magazine has been entirely rein-
                                              terpreted. Its new streamlined layout contains fewer
                                              pictures of complete buildings, but instead features a
                                              selection of photographs which better highlight the
                                              use of zinc. Our latest innovation, an online magazine
                                              with even more content, is also available should you
                                              wish to discover the projects in more detail.

                                              Enjoy your guided tour and the discoveries made.

                                              Still passionate about zinc,
