Boat, airplane, and automobile design tools and software are now applied to architectural projects using robotics and high-strength, low-weight, carbon fiber composites. Greg Lynn's studio and Mark Foster Gage's seminar at Yale with participants Frank Gehry, Lise Ann Couture, Chris Bangle, and Greg Foley, among others, generated a lively dialogue invigorating the future of design. 180 black-and-white illustrations
Across the design disciplines, drawing by hand has largely become a lost art. With digital tools at their disposal, the majority of designers create spaces while sitting at their computer screens. Attitudes are changing, however: spurred by creative boredom and by a sense of being disconnected from their briefs, today's designers seek a greater and more immediate connection with their projects. There is no better way to stimulate the imagination than by learning to draw what one sees and imparting spatial ideas by hand.
From the swooping concrete vaults of the TWA Terminal at JFK Airport to the 630-foot-tall Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the iconic designs of Eero Saarinen (1910?1961) captured the aspirations and values of mid-20th-century America.

Exhibition Design features the works of internationally renowned architects and designers' from major trade and commerce fairs to well-known fine-art institutions, to small-scale artist-designed displays.
Alberto Alfonso, René González, Chad Oppenheim, and Guy Peterson - The Florida Four - are making a mark for themselves in contemporary architectural circles, infusing modernist traditions with their own flair.
From the elegant embossed cover through hundreds of stunning color photographs,
this volume is a fitting tribute to the contemporary Mexican architect J. Francisco Serrano, whose career began in 1959 and, 40 years later, shows no sign of slowing down.
World-renowned architect Frank Gehry considers drawing a conceptual tool: his fluid, unpredictable sketches demonstrate how he searches for ideas with his pen. This handsome book, slipcased in a cardboard box that itself recalls Gehry's furniture, offers an in-depth analysis of his drawings during the two decades since computer generated design began to dominate architectural practice.
