Advances in Architectural Geometry - Book

Geometry is obviously a fundamental subject that lies at the core of Architecture. This September took place an important conference in Vienna (Advances in Architectural Geometry 2010), that ended with the publication of this book, that summarize in great details the last researches in the field of computational design.

I got a copy and I browsed quickly inside... It will take a while to read it, so I cannot give you a review here, but at the bottom there is the list of what you can find inside...
(I know, as a list is pretty boring...)
The interesting thing is that every project / research, is explained in full details, with all the references to bibliography used during the researches. 

Quite interesting is the article about the research done at SmartGeometry 2010, Deep Surfaces.
Unfortunately I was attending a different Cluster, but thanks to this publication you can take a look at what they did. Really cool.

Basically...if you are really deep into the subject, you can't miss this book... and worst case, it will make a great impression if you leave it on the desk of the office...!
