This publication includes papers which were chosen both for his or her primary contribution to structural morphology or for his or her genuine pertinence within the box. Polyhedral geometry, double-curved surfaces, organic constructions, foldable platforms, form-finding concepts, and loose shape layout are the various subject matters integrated within the contents of this e-book. The paintings awarded during this e-book is the results of greater than 15 years of analysis via researchers, engineers, mathematicians, and designers, who suggestion that conceptual layout would receive advantages from the organization of separate fields (geometry, biology, and mechanics) in a holistic strategy. each element of structural morphology is illustrated by way of a number of chapters of the e-book. so far as we all know, there are few books - might be none - that assemble all features of structural morphology, no matter if, for example, there are lots of books at the geometry of polyhedra. additionally, readers may have entry to a wide record of chosen references, in order to open the scope in their bibliography.

Sample text

The part cannot exist without the whole. Study of structural morphology cannot ignore its context; it must be in its position. Conclusion This discussion of structural morphology is not the definition of a theoretical position but a query addressed to everyone to open up pathways and avoid dead ends. We have set out an open intellectual “diagram” and mentioned a number of references. Structural morphology is an interface science, a difficult field in which superficial analogies can rapidly lead to serious mistakes.

C. 17. Viollet Le Duc, “Dictionnaire raisonné de l’Architecture Française ». 10 vol. Paris. 1854-1868. CHAPTER 3 THE STRUCTURAL MORPHOLOGY OF CURVED DIAPHRAGMS — OR THE STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOUR OF FLORAL POLYHEDRA Ture Wester Associate Professor, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Copenhagen The publication by Michael Burt The Periodic Table of the Polyhedra Universe [Ref. 2] interpret Euler’s theorem on polyhedra in three dimensional space to its extreme, and shows by this that the classical plane faceted convex polyhedra just are a tiny part of the full spectrum.

The form shows the underlying meaning without clouding it. Painters showing particular interest in the notion of structure include Paul Klee, whose investigations went furthest. His study of trees and their growth is exemplary. 2. Order and Harmony “All the orders in the world, not only the Greek which is particularly conscious, but also of the ancient East and of the American Indian, are spiritual” wrote Kerenyi. They invite the drawing up of a harmonious plan. The concept of harmony is essential for establishing order.
