Book Description

11 Oct 2010
This one-of-a-kind survey of 46 international projects, compiled and written by leading experts on architectural mathematics, offers a thorough overview of how recent developments in maths and physics are being applied to architecture. This carefully researched book offers students and practitioners new ways of thinking about the future of designing and building. Each of the 46 projects, largely built, are by globally recognized architects, presented through specially drawn illustrations and plans, photographs and texts. Chapter introductions and case studies include cross-references to a complete illustrated glossary, which further elaborates on mathematical concepts introduced in the text.

Review

'Vital to the future of architectural dialect ... an awesome turn-on'
--Architects' Journal

`This book is aimed at those for whom fractal is not a dirty word...Inside the subdued cover of this modestly sized book you will find analysis, description and beautiful photographs...if architecture is like frozen music then this is a big mash-up of Prog Rock and Stockhausen.And that cannot be a bad thing'
--RIAS Quarterly

5.0 out of 5 stars Architecture for math or math for architecure? 19 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
First came the egg or the chicken? This very good book leaves us the benefit of the doubt with a wonderful appendix that sinthetizes the different math items applied in the shown examples. The real difference between the old and the new mathematics of architecture maybe lies in the fact that in the past math principles were more hidden and closer to a concept
of beauty that was possible to be experienced but more difficult to explain, being less evident.
