About this product
- DescriptionA 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, n-Euclidean geometry, and other areas of mathematics. With insight from a top-tch list of contributors, including such tables as Philippe Morel and Fabien Scheurer, Mathematics in Space discusses how the advent of computation and information techlogy 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.
