Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic book offers imaginative insight into the area where mathematics and the arts meet. It can be used as a practical tool by the architect, designer or scientist who has to deal with such problems such as space defining, distribution patterns, space-filling properties, packing and stacking, economy grids and communication linkages.

Review:

"'Keith Critchlow has one of the century?s rare conceptual minds. He is continually inspired by the conceptioning of both earliest and latest record. He lauds the work of others while himself pouring forth, in great modesty, whole vista-filling new realizations of nature?s mathematical structuring. Keith Critchlow has added a new all-space filling snub-tetrahedron to the set of such known polyhedra ? the cube, rhombic dodecahedron, the asymmetric tetrahedron and the asymmetric hexahedron (which latter two I had the good fortune to discover). He is one of the most inspiring scholar-teachers I have had the privilege to know." Buckminster Fuller

Review:

"Exceptionally clean, clear and unpretentious...with an imaginative yet very precise and economical use of drawings." The Times Educational Supplement

Review:

"Universal in its scope...as inspiring as the 'pattern' books of the past." Interior Design
