Materials nanoarchitectonics is a new paradigm for constructing novel functional materials in the same way architecture is used in building con-struction. This Special Issue features the research at the World Premier International (WPI) Research Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA). A new building is being constructed for MANA, where research on atomic- and molecular-level nanoarchitectonics is the focus. The cover image represents both macroscopic architecture and nanoarchitecture.
