Mathematics of Space - Architectural Design

Mathematics of Space - Architectural Design

Published by darrenschulz
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-actualized 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's 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, Antoine Picon, Philippe Morel, Dennis Shelden, Fabien Scheurer and Michael Weinstock.
