|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.
|"A fascinating book which shows how the application of non figurative, abstract spatial patterns need no longer be seen as a reductive design methodology. Instead, through a complex and richer use than ever before, these devices can be implemented throughout the three dimensional organisation of a project. A great reference book with many wonderful examples for architects, students and anybody interested in the profession."|
