This book aims to satisfy the increasing thirst for information and opinion on this radical new area of design. About the Author GIUSEPPA DI CRISTINA was born in Palermo, Italy in , and graduated in Architecture at the University of Rome 'La Sapienza' where she obtained a PhD in Architectural Composition (Theories of Architecture) with a Format: Hardcover. The Architecture of Science offers a dazzling set of speculations by historians of science, architecture, and art; architectural theorists; and sociologists as well as practicing scientists and architects. How do the spaces in which science is done shape the identity of the scientist and the self-conception of scientific fields? How do the sciences structure the identity of the architect . I believe the balanced integration of art and science, utilizing lateral and linear thinking, is what creates breathtakingly beautiful architecture. It is also what makes the study and practice of architecture such a collaborative, complex and interesting endeavor. This is one of over 2, courses on OCW.

Philosophy and Design: From Engineering to Architecture is a significant contribution to the expanding field of design studies. It brings questions of design into philosophy and thereby brings diverse philosophical perspectives to bear on conceptual, methodological, epistemological, metaphysical, and ethical issues of design. Toward a Living Architecture? examines the emerging field of generative architecture and its nexus with computation, biology, and complexity. Based on Christina Cogdell’s field research in architecture studios and biological labs, this book critiques generative architecture by evaluating its scientific rhetoric and disjunction from actual scientific theory and practice, definitively.   Rural American architecture tends to be passed over, so White Pillars, whichcovers the vernacular/plantation architecture of the Mississippi Valley, is a refreshing read.
