From the Publisher. In this book, completed shortly before his death, Robin Evans recasts the idea of the relationship between geometry and architecture, drawing on mathematics, engineering, art history, and aesthetics to uncover processes in the imagining and realizing of architectural form. He shows that geometry does not always play a stolid and dormant role but, in fact, may be an active agent in the links between thinking and imagination, imagination and drawing, and drawing and building.

A great set of essays. A must to have on your shelf if you plan to teach architecture. Each essay renews your vision about the true basics of design. What is a dome? What is proportion? Robin Evans lays it all out, with engaging prose, and doesn’t miss any of the relevant points. He’s a genius.
