Abstract:

"A new generation of architects is pushing digital technology to its limits and continues a tradition of "organic" architecture, often labeled "blob-itecture." Following a trajectory traced from the 17th-century Baroque to the present by Joseph Rosa, these new designers expanded the non-Cartesian aesthetics of smooth, supple, and morphed forms by such 20th-century innovators as Frederick Kiesler, Buckminster Fuller, and John Lautner, and propel it forward into the digital age. In the process, these designers and architects broke the orthodox box of Modern architecture, and often through the use of cutting-edge computer modeling software, pushed the boundaries of what shapes could be built. The results presented here are daring methodologies and astonishing, trend-setting forms for the 21st century."--Jacket.
