Book Description

24 Oct 2008 Architectural Design (Book 78)
Investigating the current groundswell of experiments and creative work that utilises design as a method to explore and manipulate actual biological material, Neoplasmatic Design presents the impact of emerging and progressive biological advances upon architectural and design practice. The rapid development of innovative design approaches in the realms of biology, microbiology, biotechnology, medicine and surgery have immense significance for architecture, being as important for their cultural and aesthetic impact as for their technical implications.
  • Featured architects include Peter Cook, Tobias Klein, Kol/Mac, MAKE, R&Sie, Neil Spiller and VenhoevenCS. 
  • Longer contributions from medical practitioners, architects and artists: Rachel Armstrong, Marcos Cruz, Anthony Dunne, Nicola Haines, Steve Pike, Yukihiko Sugawara, and Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr/SymbioticA. 
  • Features international research projects undertaken at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, the Royal College of Art in London, the University of Western Australia and the Nagaoka Institute of Design in Japan.

5.0 out of 5 stars remarkable issue 1 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
It is refreshing to have a sight of Design beyond the trend, especially when it reveals to be this meaningful towards the understanding of inhabitation, from and for the human body.
We have been sustaining and ruling design over a technological paradigm on parametrics and programming, when actually this issue of AD exposes a far deeper architectural/technological symbiosis, based on an interdisciplinary and shared range of knowledge.
It is impressive how fast it questions one's own understanding on architecture, while crossing through Pike's and Cruz researches...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Topic 18 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
I'm writing my dissertation on the neoplasmatic architecture and so this is a blessing! There is a variety of imagery supplied from architectural students, practitioners and artists alike. This is in fact an edition on stirring debate within architecture as to why architects cannot use the technological advances of bio technology to further their designs and developments. Ultimately forever changing culture and the modern city as we know it. Truly ground breaking stuff and a good read.
