About this book

Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is ever present, from the very first attempts of form-finding to the final stages of construction. The modern tools of geometric computing for efficient design, analysis, and manufacturing of complex shapes open up new perspectives for architecture. Architecture, in turn, poses new problems to geometry. It is precisely around these topics, at the common border of geometry processing and architectural design, where the new research area of architectural geometry is situated. Advances in Architectural Geometry is the premier venue for disseminating new research ideas and cutting-edge results at the interface of geometry processing and architectural design. AAG12 brings together researchers from all related areas and takes place in Paris in September 2012.

About the editors

Lars Hesselgren is the Director of PLP Research and a Senior Associate Partner at PLP. In 2002 he received the Bentley Lifetime Achievement Award. He is a founder member of the SmartGeometry group ( which is encouraging the spread of parametric thinking as an architectural design discipline, including spearheading Alpha and Beta testing of Bentley Generative Components. The SmartGeometry Workshops and Conferences are now an established premier place to network about the latest digital design technology with conferences in Barcelona (2010), San Francisco (2009), Munich (2008), New York (2007), London (2006), Cambridge Ontario (2004), Cambridge UK (2003). He writes regularly for many publications on a variety of CAD and technology future issues and he lectures extensively both in US and in Europe, both at Industry Events and at Academic venues.
Shrikant Sharma leads SMART Solutions – Buro Happold’s specialist service that offers engineering innovations driven by computational modelling, analysis and simulations. SMART Solutions specialises in the development of efficient solutions for the built environment and beyond. The team, founded by Shrikant in 2002, offers Software Modelling Analysis Research and Technology driven solutions.
Johannes Wallner is a professor of Geometry at Graz University of Technology. He received a Dipl.Ing. (master) degree in Mechanical Engineering from Vienna University of Technology in 1996, and after a master degree in mathematics he went on to do his Ph.D. in Vienna in the same area in 1998. He has held faculty positions in Vienna, Darmstadt and Graz, where he is a full professor of Geometry since 2007. He has authored or coauthored 65 scientific publications in pure and applied geometry, nonlinear approximation theory, geometric computing, and geometry processing, including one monograph together with Helmut Pottmann.
