9780470689806: Mathematics of Space

A new title in the Architectural Design series that explores the potential of computational mathematics in cutting-edge design

Mathematics has always been a vital tool in the architect's trade, but the last fifteen years have seen a sharp rise in the power of computers and has led to computational abilities far beyond anything previously available. Modern design software and computing power have changed the traditional role of geometry in architecture and opened up new possibilities enabled by topology, non-Euclidean geometry, and other areas of mathematics.

With insight from a top-notch list of contributors, including such notables as Philippe Morel and Fabien Scheurer, Mathematics in Space discusses how the advent of computation and information technology has affected the work of contemporary architects.

  • This new title in the Architectural Design series updates architectural mathematics since the digital revolution
  • With world-class contributors, this is an essential resource for anyone interested in the ways computation has transformed the discipline
  • The book explores fascinating issues in modern design, most importantly the impact of mathematics on contemporary design creativity

For students and practitioners alike, Mathematics in Space covers vital topics in a constantly changing discipline.

From the Back Cover:

MATHEMATICS OF SPACE
GUEST-EDITED BY GEORGE L LEGENDRE

Over the last 15 years, contemporary architecture has been profoundly altered by the advent of computation and information technology. The ubiquitous dissemination of design software and numerical fabrication machinery have re-actualised the traditional role of geometry in architecture and opened it up to the wondrous possibilities afforded by topology, non-Euclidean geometry, parametric surface design and other areas of mathematics. From the technical aspects of scripting code to the biomorphic paradigms of form and its associations with genetics, the impact of computation on the discipline has been widely documented. What is less clear, and has largely escaped scrutiny so far, is the role mathematics itself has played in this revolution. Hence the time has come for designers, computational designers and engineers to tease the mathematics out of their respective works, not to merely show how it is done - a hard and futile challenge for the audience - but to reflect on the roots of the process and the way it shapes practices and intellectual agendas, while helping define new directions. This issue of AD asks: Where do we stand today? What is up with mathematics in design? Who is doing the most interesting work? The impact of mathematics on contemporary creativity is effectively explored on its own terms.

Contributors include: Mark Burry, Bernard Cache, Philippe Morel, Antoine Picon, Dennis Shelden, Fabien Scheurer and Michael Weinstock.

About the Author:

George L Legendre is a London-based architect and educator. He graduated from Harvard Graduate School of Design. He is the founder of the London-based office IJP Corporation. In 2007, the influential UK weekly Building Design elected the 3-year-old office as one of the top 5 practices in Britain led by principals under the age of 40.
