Mathematics and the Built Environment


Throughout history a rich and complex relationship has developed between mathematics and the various disciplines that design, analyse, construct and maintain the built environment.

This book series seeks to highlight the multifaceted connections between the disciplines of mathematics and architecture, through the publication of monographs that develop classical and contemporary mathematical themes – geometry, algebra, calculation, modelling. These themes may be expanded in architecture of any era, culture or style, from Ancient Greek and Rome, through the Renaissance and Baroque, to Modernism and computational and parametric design. Selected aspects of urban design, architectural conservation and engineering design that are relevant for architecture may also be included in the series.

Regardless of whether books in this series are focused on specific architectural or mathematical themes, the intention is to support detailed and rigorous explorations of the history, theory and design of the mathematical aspects of built environment.
