Quick Overview

With the increasing sophistication of CAD and other
design soft ware, there is now a wide array of means
for both designing and fabricating architecture and its
components. The proliferation of advanced modeling
soft ware and hardware has enabled architects and
students to conceive and create designs that would be
very difficult to do using more traditional methods.
This book focuses on the inspiring possibilities for
architecture that can be achieved with all the diff erent
technologies and techniques available for making
complete designs or their components.
