Morphogenesis of Flux Structure

Morphogenesis of Flux Structure


SASAKI, Mutsuro

Pap. London, 2007

Book ID: 76043

What Sasaki is proposing is nothing less than an engineering revolution  an overturning of traditional empirical methods in favour of new kinds of shape analysis that use the principles of evolution and self-organisation of living creatures, adapted from an engineering standpoint, to generate rational structural shapes with a computer. The resulting architecture flows and melts in structural terms  it is flux structure. Covers four projects Island City Central Park and Kakamigahara Crematorium (with Toyo Ito) and Qatar Education City Convention Centre and Florence New Station (with Arata Isozaki).
