Composites, Surfaces and Software: High Performance Architecture
Greg Lynn, Mark Foster Gage (Eds.)
Yale School Of Architecture, New York, 2010
By showcasing the intersection between technology, aesthetics, and function, this book offers a multidisciplinary approach to cutting-edge performative technology. In a Yale studio led by Lynn and Gage, students designed a boatbuilding facility using intelligence gleaned from the competitive sailing industry. These projects—along with work and essays by Gage and Lynn, Frank Gehry, Lise Anne Couture, Chris Bangle, and others—demonstrate how shared materials, tools, and techniques strengthen the fields of automotive and aeronautic design, boatbuilding and architecture, ultimately exhibiting the high-tech cross-pollination of form and material across industries.
