Think 3D – Update

Have completed the new chapters – the Renaissance and the River Valleys (Euphrates, Tigris, Nile, Yellow, Indus). The new material took longer to create than I thought. Have been working through the illustrations and securing rights for photos when needed. After that the index will need to be completed…The final page count will be justContinue reading Think 3D – Update

Think 3D – First draft completed as of tonight

I underestimated the number of pages – once the photo credits and links have been added the count will be in the order of 300 pages. The new working title is, “Think 3D” – “A design source book.” Recent drafts have been with Thames and Hudson and my hope is that they will publish theContinue reading Think 3D – First draft completed as of tonight

Concepts of Visual Logic Update

Am now on page 214 after an edit. Have added a really simple convergence proof for the Fibonacci ratio converging on Phi – so simple that it could even be Pythagorean. Also added an exact and not a fudged analysis of DaVinci’s  Vitruvian man with no relation to Phi, just Vitruvius.  This is all inContinue reading Concepts of Visual Logic Update

Concepts of Visual Logic

This is the new working title after “Universe of Geometries.” Now on page  200 and  have  continued to add new material to Neolithic, Greek & Pythagorean, Celtic, and Islamic sections. Have more or less completed the Shape Changing Polyhedra section but still have more to add to the Dynamic Close-Packing Sphere section. The latest sectionContinue reading Concepts of Visual Logic

A Universe Of Geometries

Am now 110 pages into my new book, A Universe Of Geometries,”  with about 200 pages to go. I aim to complete by the end April. The book is content rich, packed with info, and intended as a course, and source, book for architectural and design students, musicians, artists, structural engineers, mathematicians, scientists and thoseContinue reading A Universe Of Geometries

Nancy Stetson’s Art Studio, Boulder, Colorado

We went to visit an old friend of mine, Nancy Stetson, in Boulder, Colorado, two weekends ago. About thirty-five years ago Nancy asked me if I would design an art studio, to be built on the foothills just above Boulder. This I did using one of the geometries that I had developed and that generatedContinue reading Nancy Stetson’s Art Studio, Boulder, Colorado

The Geomorph Exhibition at the Leonardo

The “Geomorph – When Mathematics Meets Art Everything Changes,” at the Leonardo in SLC was very successful with lots of visitors. The exhibition was organized in four sections: 1. Geometry Through Time; 2. Dynamic Sphere Geometry; 3. Shape Changers; and 4. Images and Altair Designs. The workshops also turned out to be a great success withContinue reading The Geomorph Exhibition at the Leonardo
