Offering imaginative insight into the area where mathematics and the arts meet, this classic book can be used as a practical tool by architects, designers, or scientists who have to deal with problems such as space defining, distribution patterns, space-filling properties, packing and stacking, economy grids, and communication linkages. The author provides a systematic analysis of the space-defining geometries that are relevant to solving design problems. Through clear, imaginative drawings, diagrams, and charts, he presents the mathematical facts and formulas that bear on the definition and understanding of space.

About the Author:

Keith Critchlow is currently Acting Director of the Visual Islamic and Traditional Arts Department at the Prince's Foundation for Architecture and the Urban Environment.

Review:

A most striking design source book . . . develops more deeply and expansively the early solid geometry explored by Buckminster Fuller, and makes virtually a new primer in mathematical and to some extent philosophical structuring (and incidentally discovers a new polyhedral shape). -- The Times [London]

Keith Critchlow has one of the century's rare conceptual minds. -- Buckminster Fuller

Universal in its scope. . .as inspiring as the 'pattern' books of the past. -- Interior Design
