Geometry in Architecture - Design Studio Fall 2008

From classical Greece to the medieval Gothic and Orient, Kepler to the Crystallographers to Coxeter, the language and knowledge of geometry has grown and developed giving a view into a fabulous world of pure order.

The expression of these ideal forms in the world as structure and ornament and ideally a synergy of the two has and continues to be an activity of architecture when it strives to transcend utilitarian purposes. Explorations included research, hand drawing, model making and computer drafting and modeling.

Tools developed and utilized to serve the expression and fabrication of geometric compositions included rhinoscripts, grasshopper definitions and CNC 3-axis mills and laser cutters.
