  • Alessandra PONTE & Antoine PICON, eds., Architecture and the Sciences.
    2011–12

    Since antiquity, the sciences have served as a source of images and metaphors for architecture and have had a direct influence on the shaping of built space. In recent years, architects have been looking again at science as a source of inspiration in the production of their designs and constructions. Architecture and the Sciences shows how scientific paradigms have migrated to architecture through the appropriation of organic and mechanical models. Conversely, architecture has provided images for scientific and technological discourse. Accordingly, this volume investigates the status of the exchanges between the two domains.

  • on growth and form
    1917

    radical book on transformation, variation, and mathematics governing natural growth. first published in 1917 by scottish zoologist d’arcy THOMPSON, the book found a great resurgence with architects interested in algorithmic forms and animation techniques. the book examines skeletons, eggs, crystals, flowers, and natural phenomena complete with amazing diagrams illustrating analysis of structure, deformation, curvature, gradients, and morphing within the natural world.
