By Philippe Block, Jan Knippers, Niloy J. Mitra, Wenping Wang

This booklet includes 24 technical papers provided on the fourth variation of the Advances in Architectural Geometry convention, AAG 2014, held in London, England, September 2014. It bargains engineers, mathematicians, designers, and contractors perception into the effective layout, research, and manufacture of advanced shapes, in order to support open up new horizons for architecture.

The e-book examines geometric points serious about architectural layout, starting from preliminary notion to ultimate fabrication. It makes a speciality of 4 key themes: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and in addition perform within the kind of case stories. additionally, the e-book additionally positive factors algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the e-book offers either theoretical and useful paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the varied elements of the modern architectural traits that push the construction envelope in the direction of loose shape so that it will reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its creation of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this booklet will turn out an incredible source to either newbies to the sphere in addition to complicated practitioners.

The Geometry of Domains in Space (Birkhäuser Advanced Texts)

The publication could be hugely prompt for graduate scholars as a complete advent to the sector of geometric research. additionally mathematicians operating in different components can revenue much from this conscientiously written e-book. particularly, the geometric rules are offered in a self-contained demeanour; for a few of the wanted analytic or measure-theoretic effects, references are given.

Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery: 10th International Conference, DGCI 2002 Bordeaux, France, April 3–5, 2002 Proceedings

This publication constitutes the refereed complaints of the tenth foreign convention on electronic Geometry for machine Imagery, DGCI 2002, held in Bordeaux, France, in April 2002. The 22 revised complete papers and thirteen posters awarded including three invited papers have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from sixty seven submissions.

A treatise on the geometry of the circle and some extensions to conic sections by the method of reciprocation, with numerous examples.

Leopold is thrilled to submit this vintage booklet as a part of our large vintage Library assortment. the various books in our assortment were out of print for many years, and consequently haven't been available to most people. the purpose of our publishing application is to facilitate speedy entry to this large reservoir of literature, and our view is this is an important literary paintings, which merits to be introduced again into print after many a long time.

As the scale of the pavilion was closer to urban furniture the idea of organic shapes was chosen to maximize possibilities of interactions with the visitor (Fig. 9). The design system explained in Sect. 4 has been applied on these freeform surfaces showing the capacities of the system, despite the drastic curvature changes. Fig. 9 Case study ‘Slicing Opacity’ Application of Hybrid Glass-Timber Elements in Architecture 53 Fig. 2 Structural Analysis Preliminary finite element analysis is performed on the structure.

A further potential use in the construction industry of the system is debated. 1 Introduction Spatial liberation of the architectural plan has been an achievement in the use of reinforced concrete technology. The structural efficiency provided by it enabled the design of floor plans with the structure and architectonical elements such as a wall being disconnected. The use of structural glass, as illustrated for a multitude of new applications by Henriksen (2012), could aim towards a similar design dialectic.

The transfer into a technical application requires a level of abstraction, which allows the use of specific functional features without recreating the complexity of the entire natural role model. In the present case this becomes visible through the favouring of the advantages of a modular construction logic over the structural benefit of a seamless continuous shell. 2 Bottom Up Winding Process Investigation Parallel to biomimetic investigations in an integrated design process, extensive research on fabrication strategies explore geometric potentials inherent in a material system.
