Item description for Mathland by Michele Emmer...

Space "mutates" and is strictly dependent on our scientific concepts. The mutation of these concepts is important because even architecture mutates over time, changing with the various periods and variations in the tools that allow its realization. We can be certain of some of these relationships between the scientific concepts of space and architecture, the relationship between perspective, the architecture of Humanism and the Ptolemaic universe, or that of Cartesian space, of the Mongean projection system and the progressive birth of an architecture that was first a perspective and then more abstract and analytical. But what is happening today? Because if the concept of space has been mutated (and how!) and if the computer technology of this mutation is an agent to at least two or three different powers, then we are in a field of research as rich as it is difficult. We begin to understand the laws and see several possibilities. We are in a "topological" concept of space (we are not interested in the construction of geometric "absolutes" but in systems of families and possible relationships between forms) and are also working to create form in architecture and make spaces actually explorable in more dimensions than just the Cartesian ones.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mathland?

Read this book! and then Re-read it!  Mar 15, 2008
One of those books that make you think and go OUTSIDE the "box" - alas, beyond the flat surface of the box.
Stimulating, insightful, and connecting the dots where few people have connected them like this. ANyone who wants to break out of his/her own "rut" of thinking, go read this - put it aside - and re-read it again. One of those books that just creates new dimensions with each time you read it. Is that what is meant by re-generating dimensions? Enjoy
