Cecil Balmond

Informal

Informal
Paperback
$ 29.95| £ 22.50 (* recommended retail price)

Cecil Balmond is one of the most revolutionary structural designers working in architecture today.

His structural thinking differs from that of others in his field in its completely innovative conception of the development of form and its impact on architecture. The plasticity of architectural plans is enhanced through a decisive promotion of their structural designs. The borderline between structure and architecture thus becomes increasingly blurred. This process is explained in detail in Informal by reference to eight seminal projects. Balmond elucidates the theoretical basis of his engineering and architectural solutions, and his sketches transcend purely technical illustration-they are key to his approach. Informal invites readers to rethink their understanding of the relationships between architecture, design, and engineering.
