Critics agree! Architectural Geometry is an innovative text that provides a path to constructive geometry in the digital era that transcends a specific application toward architecture. More than 700 jam-packed pages take users on a journey from basic to advanced geometry and beyond to the cutting edge of research.

Architectural Geometry is the first book to introduce a revolutionary new approach to design.

Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is omnipresent, from the initial form-finding stages to the actual construction. Modern constructive geometry provides a variety of tools for the efficient design, analysis, and manufacture of complex shapes. This results in new challenges for architecture. However, the architectural application also poses new problems to geometry. Architectural geometry is therefore an entire research area, currently emerging at the border between applied geometry and architecture.

Written for students, architects, construction engineers, and industrial designers - Architectural Geometry is a source of inspiration for scientists interested in applications of geometry processing in architecture and art.

With over 700 pages, including 2,100 full-color images of built architecture, architectural projects, and artwork, Architectural Geometry takes readers from basic to advanced geometry then leads them to the cutting-edge of research in the architectural geometry field.
