ABSTRACT

This book offers an alternative vision for the future of architecture, a timely and invaluable contribution to the debate concerning emergent surfaces and the next generation of building membranes in this era of extreme computational control.

Areas covered include:

  • the future relationship between structure and ornament
  • the value of mass customization for the next generation of modular building components
  • the role of smart materials in creating a sustainable universe.

Critical essays are combined with cutting-edge work to form an inspiring manual of varied digital and analog techniques. Highly illustrated with over 300 photographs, illustrations, and drawings, Autogenic Structures is for anyone curious to learn about a visionary approach to the development of architecture.
