An architecture school classic and a must for anyone aspiring to a deeper understanding of geometrical designs


This classic book offers imaginative insight into the area where mathematics and the arts meet. It can be used as a practical tool by the architect, designer or scientist who has to deal with such problems as space defining, distributing patterns, space-filling properties, packing and stacking, economy grids and communication linkages.


'Keith Critchlow has one of the century’s rare conceptual minds. He is continually inspired by the conceptioning of both earliest and latest record. He lauds the work of others while himself pouring forth, in great modesty, whole vista-filling new realizations of nature’s mathematical structuring.… He is one of the most inspiring scholar-teachers I have had the privilege to know'
Buckminster Fuller
