Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This book examines morphogenetic processes based on a combination of digital and analogue modeling and manufacturing techniques. Traditional physical modelling techniques were combined with digital 3d modelling and manufacturing technologies, informing the emerging constructs with additional components. These modules can in many cases be translated into architectural designs. They operate as precursors of architecture to come.

These visual studies have been produced in the academic context of the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany). The produced output proves not only to be an exciting new way in educational motivation and systematic architectural approach, but also serves as an important step of intruducing (future) architects into the understanding and handling of complex geometries and novel CAD / CAM technologies.

Asterios (born 1974) studied architecture in the Aristotle Univ. of Thessaloniki, the RWTH (Aachen) and the Staedelschule (Frankfurt). He was a partner in the architectural practice b&k+ (Cologne, 2001- 04), and then worked for VMX architects (Amsterdam) until 2005. He founded the architecture and research laboratory a3lab Frankfurt - Thessaloniki, in the same year. Since then he has been practicing architecture and design publishing, exhibiting, winning prizes and realizing projects throughout Europe. Teaching and lecturing experiences include AdbK Nuremberg, TU Darmstadt, the Univ. of Thessaloniki, the Univ. of Bielefeld, the Columbia Univ. and the Staedelschule. He is currently Visiting Associate Professor in the Lebanese American University.

Its a nice book but I would call it a 'book' loosely. Its very small and more like a flick book.

It does show some interesting ideas but felt more like a book that had been made from student projects.

I would invest in a more recognised book on modular structures.

A little too abstract.

1.0 out of 5 stars tiny, obscure, and disappointing 1 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This book is very hard to understand. It is not written by a native English speaking person and it is exceedingly dense. Ever heard of the Fleisch readability index?. It is only 4" x 3", and is largely pictures with Little understandable story or raison.

I expected that it would tell a person how to use modular structures... which to me, means also discussing the connections that bind things together. I think that the author was showing pictures of organic structures or fractal, as much as modular.

I'm disappointed in this, and could have gotten as much from a google search... without text

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 21 Jun. 2014
By Marin Q - Published on
It's dense. The editorial description mentions the modular structures as "exciting new avenues in educational motivation." The description says the author is a PhD student in Germany. The review that gives it 5 stars is written by the author or a person who has the same name or has chosen the same pen name. This review calls the book very inspiring. It didn't inspire me.
