WEDNESDAY, MAY 18
At Center for Architecture
Co-editor Mark Foster Gage will present Composites, Surfaces, and Software: High Performance Ar-chitecture (WW Norton, March 2011).
Composites, Surfaces, and Software: High Performance Architecture explores how computer technolo-gies and digital fabrication techniques give architects unprecedented tools for crafting performance and aesthetics through cross-disciplinary collaboration. Boat, airplane, and automobile design tools and software are now applied to architectural projects using robotics and high-strength, low-weight, carbon fiber composites.
