About this Item

Language: English. Brand new Book. Design methodology in architecture and design has changed significantly over the last ten years, taking on major significance. More than ever, graphic attributes are used in contemporary architecture. A number of these new design methods and applications emerged through the use of digital media, leading to a paradigm shift in the way we design.BIS Publishers has already showcased these new design methods in a series of small books on form experiments in architecture and design, such as Folding Architecture and Supersurfaces (Vyzoviti) and Modular Structures (Agkatidis), but no comprehensive book on the topic had been published until now.Inspiration: Contemporary Design Methods in Architecture is a comprehensive compilation of work samples and ideas on design and gestalt, illustrations and graphic configurations, textures and structures, as well as form and spatial development. This book features more than 800 examples of abstract compositions that relate to architectural design methods and principles. These methodologies find their ground in the work of contemporary architectural design practice, while still being highly applicable to other related creative fields. Inspiration showcases hundreds of examples, models, sketches, and renderings of abstract architectural design applications. In addition to this substantial body of visual work, the book also documents and details the generative process and production of these design creations. Bookseller Inventory # HUK9789063692674

About this title

Synopsis:

Inspiration provides a comprehensive overview of new design methods and techniques that are emerging in the field of architecture. Many of these design methods make use of digital media and computer algorithms. Some already existed for a long time, but are reinvented in new ways, like design by folding paper materials. These new methodologies have changed the way architects and students design.

The book showcases hundreds of examples, models, sketches, and renderings of architectural designs within dozens of different methodologies, including:

Designing with basic elements (lines, circles, squares, planes, dots)Pattern development (texture, axes, grids, symmetry)Spacial patterns (structure, matrix, modules)Typography as a design tool (psychological phenomena, composition theory, color design)Nonspatial and spatial transformations (figure ground relations, additive spatial design, spatial effects)Basic spatial design, complex spatial design, and parametric design
