Publisher's description: The world can be turned inside out; the world has rhythm. The noted work and writings of German-born sculptor, mathematician, mechanical engineer and inventor Paul Schatz (1898-1979) -- a kind of European R. Buckminster Fuller -- offers wholly contemporary viewpoints in this fourth printing of Schatz's 1975 retrospective monograph. Schatz's journey of discovery led to stunning developments in architectural, industrial and environmental design. Oloids and cuboids -- his own discoveries in the late 1920s -- are forms intriguing in their beauty but also proven useful in water and environmental engineering. This book, now translated in English for its first time in 38 years, presents a life's work that bridges art and the natural sciences and offers inspiration for philosophers and practitioners alike.
