I wanted to let the list know of a forthcoming publication called
"Architectural Geometry" from Bentley Institute Press.
700 plus pages for the digital freeform fabricator. Heavily illustrated.
This one should eventually be on shop tables and in architecture and
engineering offices everywhere. I'll be reviewing a proof of the book and
will post notice of this when it becomes available.
It is also a good time for us to launch the Blog portion of our website.
Feel free to forward links. The site will be related to non-Euclidean design
and construction. We will also be heavily involved with rapid prototyping,
the organization of cad data, as well as the underlying mathematics related
to freeform projects.
