The architecture of organization: By coupling synthesis, self-assembly, and transformation at the mesoscopic scale it should be possible to develop a chemistry of emergent structures based on the time- and scale-dependent coupling of interactive components. This review highlights how the interplay between the aggregation and crystallization of hybrid inorganic–organic building blocks can lead to complex single crystals, organized nanoparticle arrays, and embedded nanostructures with higher-order architecture (see picture).
