Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0070342512, Paperback)

Design science-the grammar of space. It defines structures, it spans the fields of art, architecture, engineering, computer graphics, and mathematics. In this comprehensive, first-of-its-kind volume, the geometric and mathematical foundations of objects and space are fully explored in easy-to-understand language, showing how the properties of symmetry, proportion, connectivity, and stability contribute to the creation of beautiful designs and structures, as well as to the foundations of our knowledge of the universe and what is in it. New topics include the application of graph theory to the design of floor plans and the use of the musical scale as a unifying principle of architectural proportion. Liberally illustrated with design exercises, projects, and problems.
