The New Structuralism : Design, Engineering and Architectural Technologies, Paperback / softback Book

The New Structuralism : Design, Engineering and Architectural Technologies Paperback / softback

Part of the Architectural Design series


Today the convergence of design, engineering and architectural technologies are breeding a new material practice in experimental architecture.

In this pioneering publication, this important shift is fully defined as a highly dynamic synthesis of emerging principles of spatial, structural and material ordering integrated through the application of materialization and fabrication technologies.

Providing the foundations for a new theory of structuring in architecture, The New Structuralism has broad implications for the way we both conceive and undertake architectural design, as its impact starts to emanate not only across education internationally, but also through architectural research and practice. Features premier research and design-oriented engineering practices: Bollinger + Grohmann Buro Happold Hanif Kara (AKT) Werner Sobek Focuses on design and fabrication technologies in the recent work of: Martin Bechthold Barkow Leibinger EMBT (Enric Miralles, Benedetta Tagliabue) Gramazio & Kohler Fabian Scheurer (designtoproduction) Yves Weinand and Markus Hudert Contributors include: John Chilton Dominik Holzer and Steven Downing Neri Oxman Helmut Pottmann Nina Rappaport
