Design and geometry
Tackling a topic that has particular appeal in the
age of digital design, this well-founded introduction to the subject of
parquet deformation fills a gap. These subtle, intricate geometric
transformations, best known through the "Metamorphosis" series by M. C.
Escher, were introduced to design curricula by American professor
William S. Huff in the 1960s. The book brings together scholarly
articles by the most important authors in the field and material
collected in the archives of the Ulm School of Design in Germany,
juxtaposed with extensive illustrations of two- and three-dimensional
works created at the Vienna University of Technology.
Written for anyone interested in the fields of design and geometry, this book aims to inform and inspire.
