The Cosentino Group, global Spanish company leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for design and architecture, presents “Photo New Skin Architecture”, a spectacular book by Professor Ricardo Santonja, photographer and Doctor of Architecture from ETSAM – Polytechnic University of Madrid.
