Twist & Build: Creating Non-orthogonal Architecture

Front Cover
010 Publishers, 2001 - Architecture - 287 pages
Architects often prefer to approach their designs as sculptors: Frank Gehry, for instance, sculpts his models in clay. Twist & Build is architect Karel Vollers' analysis of non-orthogonal architecture. Vollers starts his intriguing quest by exploring instances of slanting and perpendicular lines in town planning, analyzing a variety of twisted volumes through close critical commentary and with abundant illustrations.
