At their office I could see first hand the study models for some of the projects the firm has been involved, such as a mockup for their P. These small pieces had a lot to tell, not only about the specific project they were part of, but also their iterations. The book presents in a clear way with very good examples the methods behind digital fabrication: sectioning, tessellating, folding, contouring, and forming. For most of us these words are pretty much obvious and we often use them as design principles of our projects. But to get the full scope of what they really mean, or for those that want to start understanding -and using- them, this is a recommended reading.

Architecture is fundamentally concerned with two core activities: designing and making. Of course, these are not mutually exclusive and often inform one another in a continuous dialogue as projects progress from concepts, through design development, to final form typically the realization of a building. The ability to effectively communicate creative ideas remains a central aspect of the discipline. With the development of numerous Computer-Aided Design CAD and other software packages, the variety of design processes available to architects, which may influence the fabrication of architecture and its components, is greater than ever. Of specific interest in this field is the recent capability to integrate analog and digital techniques and processes to produce physical objects, whether three-dimensional concept diagrams, scale models, or full-size prototypes.
The book is organized according to types of digital fabrication techniques that have emerged over the past fifteen years: sectioning, tessellating, folding, contouring.
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. The ability to digitally model designs, and thus to use those models directly in the context of production, creates a synthesis between design and construction in keeping with the tradition of the close relationship between design and craftsmanship, between the quality of the design and the rules of the craft.

Architecture continually informs and is informed fabrication and the material practices it has shaped be of interest to anyone who wants to know how and not the complex curving forms, is what by its modes of representation and construction, and revitalized.
