Architecture

Calculus and the new forms of architecture: Greg Lynn on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Greg Lynn talks about the mathematical roots of architecture — and how calculus and digital tools allow modern designers to move beyond the traditional building forms. A glorious church in Queens (and a titanium tea set) illustrate his theory. (Recorded February 2005 in Monterey, California. Duration: 18:55.)
