Geometry has always provided methods for designing architectural projects. Modern design tools in conjunction with modern production machines, provide a variety of tools for the design, analysis and construction of complex architectural forms. In a field of dynamic interaction process, architecture raises new concerns in geometry, which in turn is oriented towards new issues. This fact makes more than ever necessary the theoretical and designing approach of the basic geometric elements, relations, operations and transformations that constitute a design process of modern construction. In the context of such a new approach to the role of geometry in the design of modern construction, the issues that seem to play a decisive role in shaping the relevant concept are part of the general theory of polyhedra, polyhedral transformations and the general theory of surfaces.
What is attempted with this book is the presentation of a way of thinking that starts from abstract geometric concepts and ends with the application of these concepts to specific issues of architectural design.
