Presentation of Geometric Taxonomy by Ignacio Paricio

Ignacio Paricio presents Geometric Taxonomy, by Actar. A book that describes the search for an internal structure in the geometries of the work by Carlos Ferrater and OAB and analyzes geometry’s role in the creation and development of their designs.  Geometric Taxonomy approaches those geometries that are present in timeless architecture,  explicit in the great treatises, those that dazzled us with “the correct and magnificent wise play of forms under the light”, the elemental forms that inspired modernity a hundred years ago.

The result demonstrates a common syntax as well as geometry’s ability to evolve toward new forms of architectural expression.
