Structure and Form in Design Critical Ideas for Creative Practice

by Michael Hann

Structure and Form in Design Critical Ideas for Creative Practice Synopsis

This book provides a critical examination of structure and form in design, covering a range of topics of great value to students and practitioners engaged in any of the specialist decorative arts and design disciplines. The complexities of two-dimensional phenomena are explained and illustrated in detail, while various three-dimensional forms are also discussed. In the context of the decorative arts and design, structure is the underlying framework, and form the resultant, visible, two- or three-dimensional outcome of the creative process. Whether hidden or visually detectable in the final design, structure invariably determines whether or not a design is successful in terms of both its aesthetics and its practical performance. Hann successfully identifies various geometric concepts, and presents and discusses a number of simple guidelines to assist the creative endeavours of both accomplished and student practitioners, teachers and researchers.

Structure and Form in Design Critical Ideas for Creative Practice Press Reviews

This book is a unique contribution to the theory of structural design in two and three dimensional form, and should be of interest to surface designers, architects, and interior designers. * Charlotte Jirousek, Cornell University *
