Always received with a mix of fascination and awe, blob architecture is conquering the metropolises of the world. With their futuristic look - softly rounded at times, boldly curved at others - the buildings stand out from the bulk of urban structures. Whether a classic computer-generated blob, an experiment with new mould-breaking shapes, or in combination with de-constructive elements - the applied cutting-edge technologies and materials are fertile grounds for unlimited creativity. Blob ! Round Shapes, Fluid Forms presents the best contemporary projects from around the world, giving a comprehensive overview of current developments. The projects that were carefully selected for this book are as unique as they are versatile and vivid proof that the fascination of the blob remains as strong as ever.Biographie de l'auteur :

The term Blob Architecture was first used in 1995 by Greg Lynn to describe biomorphic buildings, whose complex forms were created with the help of computers. Initially only used to describe organic, rounded objects Blobitecture today comprises and inspires many variations: from the classic, computer-generated blob to the experimenting with new, sprawling shapes, up to the combination with deconstructive elements or parametric architecture. On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of blob architecture, this volume features the best contemporary projects and provides an extensive survey of current developments. Buildings from all around the world are presented, created by famous architects and promising newcomers and ranging from large-scale projects to temporary installations. They all have one thing in common even after twenty years blob architecture remains as freshly interesting and promising as ever. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9783037682012
