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.
Computational Architecture offers an overview of digital tools and techniques, such as twisting, lofting, triangulating, drilling, knotting, and framing, that were used systematically to explore spatial, structural, and geometrical conditions, leading to the emergence of ...

Este libro, recoge de una parte, una exposición de teoría básica del comportamiento de elementos de arquitectura de fábrica (arcos y bóvedas) en lo que es la teoría consolidada de análisis límite de fábricas, unida ...
This book examines the possibilities emerging for design and architecture by the introduction of novel computer-aided design (CAD) and digital manufacturing techniques. The form studies show the translation of digitally conceived structures into 1:1 physical ...

Este libro es un innovador tratado de construcción que, partiendo de la premisa de que proyectar y construir forman una unidad inseparable, aborda las diferentes ramas del conocimiento constructivo tanto desde la vertiente técnica como ...
Balmond is making the transition from structural engineer working alongside other architects to an architect in his own right. His structural thinking differs from that of others in his field, in its completely innovative conception ...
