Review

This book is a unique contribution to the theory of structural design in two and three dimensional form, and should be of interest to surface designers, architects, and interior designers. --Charlotte Jirousek, Cornell University

In support of Tim Allen's previous review, this book is nothing more than a way of exploiting students. The fact that we have to buy this book in order to pass the (compulsory) module is ridiculous. Completely extortionate for what it is.

Format: Paperback
This book is unbelievably overpriced for what it is, £25 for a book this size, with this amount of content is, is ridiculous. The only reason people are buying this book is because the Professor Michael Hann is making his students buy it.... MAKING them... making them spend £25 on this because the module is based on it, and subsequently the whole exam is based on it. This is a ridiculously unfair, selfish and idiotic thing to do, to make your book really expensive and make students buy it in order to pass their course- how dare a professor do this. I suggest this module gets dropped. Luckily, the University thinks the same too, so bye bye Professor Hann, take your stupidly priced book and try make some over mugs buy it.

Structure and Form in Design. Critical Ideas for Creative Practice
by Michael Hann
This book is concerned with structure and form in design and covers a range of topics of value to students and practitioners engaged in the any of the specialist decorative arts and design disciplines common in educational systems worldwide. The complexities of two-dimensional phenomenon are explained and illustrated in some detail and attention is turned also to explaining various three-dimensional forms. In the context of the decorative arts and design, structure is the underlying framework, and form is the resultant, visible, two- or three-dimensional outcome of the creative process. So beneath the form of a design or other physical composition lies the structure. Whether hidden or visually detectable in the final design, structure invariably determines whether or not a design is successful in terms of both its aesthetics and its practical performance.
Substantial emphasis is placed on identifying various geometric concepts and in presenting and discussing a range of simple guidelines to assist the creative endeavours of both accomplished and student practitioners, teachers and researchers. While the focus is on explaining concepts and principles associated largely with two-dimensional space, where appropriate the applicability or relevance to the realms of three-dimensions is noted also. While the student designer is the principal intended audience, there is much of value to experienced (and not so experienced) practitioners as well as design researchers and other observers who wish to explore the fundamentals governing structure and form in the decorative arts and design. The book is profusely illustrated throughout.

I would highly recommend this. 30 July 2013
By Greg Byrne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I regret not having this book during my studies. It's beautifully considered structure, use of language, use of examples and illustrations make complex concepts much easier to understand. This book is a must have for a budding designer in any field. I will be recommending this to friends.
