matias del CAMPO will give a lecture describing the design process and execution of the austrian pavilion for the shanghai expo 2010 by span & zeytinoglu.
topology is the main driving force of the design of the austrian pavilion, a major area of mathematics concerned with spatial properties that are preserved under continuous deformations of objects, for example deformations that involve stretching, but no tearing or gluing. it emerged through the development of concepts from geometry and set theory, such as space, dimension, and transformation.
