MORPHING: A GUIDE TO MATHEMATICAL TRANSFORMATIONS FOR ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS. Joseph Choma. Laurence King Publishing Ltd, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Chronicle Books, San Francisco. 232 pp. with 869 ills. 23 x 23 cm. ISBN 9781780674131 In English.
Publisher's description: Cylinders, spheres and cubes are a small handful of shapes that can be defined by a single word. However, most shapes cannot be found in a dictionary. They belong to an alternative plastic world defined by trigonometry: a mathematical world where all shapes can be described under one systematic language and where any shape can transform into another. This visually striking guidebook clearly and systematically lays out the basic foundation for using these mathematical transformations as design tools. It is intended for architects, designers, and anyone with the curiosity to understand the link between shapes and the equations behind them.
