    Book details

Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is ever present, from the very first attempts of form-finding to the final stages of construction. The modern tools of geometric computing for efficient design, analysis, and manufacturing of complex shapes open up new perspectives for architecture. Architecture, in turn, poses new problems to geometry. It is precisely around these topics, at the common border of geometry processing and architectural design, where the new research area of architectural geometry is situated. Advances in Architectural Geometry is the premier venue for disseminating new research ideas and cutting-edge results at the interface of geometry processing and architectural design. AAG12 brings together researchers from all related areas and takes place in Paris in September 2012.

Advances in Architectural Geometry is a symposium presenting both theoretical and practical work linked to new geometric developments applicable to architecture. This symposium aims to gather the diverse components of contemporary architectural trends which push the building envelope towards free form, and which respond to these design challenges with a renewed mathematical rigor. A research section of 26 papers is preceded by an interview with Frédéric Migayrou (Deputy director of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre de Création Industrielle – Pompidou Centre), where he explores the larger context of free-form architecture with respect to contemporary architectural design and the last two centuries of structural engineering.
