Synopsis: Digital design pioneer Greg Lynn delves into the genesis and establishment of new tools for design conceptualization, visualization, and production at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s in this catalog accompanying his exhibition at the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Conceived as an object-based investigation of four pivotal built projects that established distinct directions in architecture s use of digital tools like CAD, the book highlights the dialogue between computer sciences, architecture and engineering that was at the core of these experiments. The Lewis Residence by Frank Gehry (1989 95) was prescient in exploring the power of computer rationalization in describing and fabricating sculptural tectonic elements. Peter Eisenman s Biozentrum (1987) tested the computer s ability to generate its own formal language using digital scripting. The scaffold-like lines of Shoei Yoh s unbuilt Odawara Municipal Sports Complex (1990 91) and constructed gymnasium Galaxy Toyama (1990 92) were verified for integrity by computer analysis, using intensive coding and virtual testing to advance a language of minimalist structural expressionism. Chuck Hoberman s Expanding Sphere (1992) is a finely-tuned folding polyhedron that smoothly expands and contracts, opening the way to later explorations in responsive and adaptive architecture. This volume includes conversations with the architects and key collaborators in each of the featured projects architects, engineers, software programmers and university researchers whose interests in these nascent technologies were evident in their own practices. Each project is then presented through a selection of archival material, conveying factual and concrete information on their development through this material history. With text by and interviews with Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Benjamin Gianni, Chuck Hoberman, Greg Lynn, Kenshi Oda, Bill Record, Rick Smith, Tensho Takemori, Joe Tanney, Chris Yessios, Shoei Yoh, and Mirko Zardini. Design by Katja Gretzinger.

Book Description Sternberg Press, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, 2013. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Digital design pioneer Greg Lynn delves into the genesis and establishment of new tools for design conceptualisation, visualisation, and production at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s in this catalogue accompanying his exhibition at the Canadian Centre for Architecture¿. Canadian Centre for Architecture and Sternberg Press Paperback, lightly edgeworn paperback, but a clean attractive copy. Two-part softcover held together by innovative floating wraps - a slightly curious binding with the two volumes bound together but with both having their spine on the left hand side. One is titled Field notes and the other Project files. The two are held together by the spine binding of the overall volume. Numerous black and white diagrams and some coloured architectural diagrams. Binding is good, although one book has rubbed against the other and the spine cover is slightly lifted, some marks to bottom and front of page edges. Bookseller Inventory # 002961
