Geometry Architecture Dynamic Sphere Lattices

“Ideation lattices” are three-dimensional latticed generated by the “Dynamic Sphere Geometry” to stimulate “visual logic” and creativity. They are the three-dimensional equivalent of “Perceptual Patterns.” Form extracted from an ideation lattice generated by the dynamic sphere geometry

Geometry Mind Doodles

Mind Doodles are visual puzzles – the product of various types of logic developed by cultures past and present. Each design has been selected to stimulate your visual perception or to challenge your logic. The book is sized like a journal but its objective is to stimulate ideas, to provide a platform for creativity, to provide space for idleContinue reading Geometry Mind Doodles

This is what Thames & Hudson are saying about 3D Thinking:

This is what Thames & Hudson Ltd (London), my publisher, are saying about my latest book, “3D Thinking” (to be published Spring 2018): The foundations, forms and patterns in architecture, design and decorative arts throughout the world have been deeply influenced by the geometries of past cultures. From the first path-like doodles on cave wallsContinue reading This is what Thames & Hudson are saying about 3D Thinking:

3D Thinking – Last stages of editorial

The deadline for the final edit is August 15th – this includes the math edit which is almost complete. The last remaining task is to complete the Index. I had no idea that the editorial phase would take up so much time. We were a little held up last year due to an earthquake inContinue reading 3D Thinking – Last stages of editorial

Dynamic Sphere Geometry – Updated Page

Have updated the “Dynamic Sphere Geometry” page. Applications are architectural, design, new materials. Revised page has updated animations showing how close packing sphere arrangements (of different sized spheres) are generated, examples of sequences and an example of an architectural lattice generated by the geometry.

Bridges Conference 2016 University of Jyvaskyla, Finland

Just returned from the Bridges Conference held this year at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. Met some great people, mathematicians, architects, designers… Presented “Shape Changing Polyhedra,” from my latest book “3D Thinking” to be published by Thames and Hudson Ltd Spring 2017. My presentation included stop frame animations and movie clips of shape-changing polyhedra full-shellContinue reading Bridges Conference 2016 University of Jyvaskyla, Finland

KPCW Radio Interview

Just appeared on KPCW; this morning in fact. Questions raised have made me think a bit more broadly about October’s, “Geomorph – Everything Changes When Mathematics Meets Art,” exhibition at the Leonardo in Salt Lake City. I made a comment on-air that, when we teach mathematics and science, we should go back to the pointContinue reading KPCW Radio Interview
