Laurence King Publishing

Spheres, cylinders, and cubes are a small handful of platonic 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 guide book 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.
