By Rene Motro

The structural morphology operating workforce of the overseas organization for Shell and Spatial buildings, based in 1991, has helped to release a number of foreign seminars, newsletters and particular periods of foreign meetings dedicated to structural morphology. This ebook comprises papers which have been chosen both for his or her basic contribution to structural morphology or for his or her real pertinence within the box. Polyhedral geometry, double-curved surfaces, organic constructions, foldable structures, form-finding concepts, and unfastened shape layout are a number of the themes incorporated within the contents of this e-book. The paintings provided during this publication is the results of greater than 15 years of analysis through researchers, engineers, mathematicians, and designers, who proposal that conceptual layout would get advantages from the organization of separate fields (geometry, biology, and mechanics) in a holistic procedure. each element of structural morphology is illustrated via a number of chapters of the booklet. so far as we all know, there are few books - might be none - that assemble all elements of structural morphology, whether, for example, there are various books at the geometry of polyhedra. in addition, readers could have entry to a wide checklist of chosen references, as a way to open the scope in their bibliography.
