This innovative, inspiring, and comprehensive book showcases the work of the world's best designers. While there are any number of books that illustrate contemporary design, this book is unique in that it shows how the products are made, and the details of the technology and materials employed. Mel Byars - teacher, lecturer, and author of The Design Encyclopedia - documents the revolution that has occured in the last few decades in the use and exploration of old and new materials in utilitarian objects, including fibers, composites, plastics, synthetic wood, adhesives, paper, foam, metal, and even seaweed. The work of some of the most imaginative minds in the design world is featured, in the creation of intriguing, sophisticated, and even amusing objects. Construction and concept are clearly illustrated through exploded drawings and hundreds of color photographs, many taken especially for this book.
The development of a new design is often thought of as a fundamentally human, creative act. However, emerging research has demonstrated that aspects of design synthesis can be formalized. First steps in this direction were taken in the early 1960s when systematic techniques were introduced to guide engineers in producing high-quality designs. By the mid-1980s these methods had evolved from their informal (guideline-like) origins to more formal (computable) methods. In recent years, highly automated design synthesis techniques have emerged. This intriguing book reviews formal design synthesis methods. It also provides an in-depth exploration of several representative projects in formal design synthesis and examines future directions in computational design synthesis research. Written by internationally renowned experts in engineering and architectural design, it covers essential topics in engineering design, and will appeal to designers, researchers and engineering graduate students.
