Geometry of Architectural Freeform Structures
 H. Pottmann, A. Schiftner, J. Wallner.

Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten, Nr. 209 (2008).


This article shows to which extent a particular field of mathematics, namely discrete differential geometry, has recently become relevant in architectural design. It is very interesting that new mathematics has emerged from this cooperation with a branch of knowledge hitherto not known for its use of mathematical methods.
