A remarkable book - a broad extended essay that draws on a multitude of sources to promote the concept of minimal structures with maximal capabilities.
It's as if Edward Tufte had spliced his ideas
with Buckminster Fuller.
Highly recommended as 'food for thought' on a Sunday afternoon.

内容は金属構造から、テキスタイル、コンポジットストラクチャーへの変革へのいざないを楽しく、おしゃれな図絵がいっぱいの内容で紹介している本。オランダの某工科大学のコンポジットの授業で使われているとのこと。こんな楽しい教科書がいっぱいあったらいいなあと思いました。
