'Skin Architecture', which has been an important topic of architectural discourse in the recent past, is playing an even greater role in the design expression of architectural materials nowadays. The purpose of this study is to define the epidermal conception about material matter and to discover the various modes of visual effect in the use of architectural materials. Epidermal thought is expressed in different forms, ranging from a simple covering made up of materials of all kinds, removable or technological wrappings. Analyzing the recent experiments from the works of Bernard chumi, Herzog & de Meuron, Peter Zumthor, Gigon & Guyer, it can be argued that the skin is a good emotional approach in the design expression of architectural material matter as epidermal concept since the 1980's.
