On Growth and Form

Organic Architecture and Beyond

“D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson demonstrated new working methods for understanding the influence of physical forces within the environment. The projects described in this book are based on analysis and design methods whose development owes much to Thompson’s research. The architectural projects discussed in this book explore structural systems based on tensile and ‘tensegrity’ systems in which stretching and pulling forces can play throughout a structure. These hybrid structures are accompanied by design methods where complex relationships can be analyzed and refined, and by a fresh palette of building elements made possible by computer-controlled prototyping and manufacturing.”
