DENMARK AUTHOR PUBLISHES NEW BOOK
October 16, 2012 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "A Cube in Architecture, Nuclear Physics, and Astronomy," a new book by Rune Jakobsen, has been released by RoseDog Books.
This book contains different architectural projects and theories and also studies in the production of energy and transport based on statistics and dynamics. The book is shaped like a cube, and its faces represent the six perspectives – lines, form, structure, forces, rotation, and balance – through which architecture, nuclear physics, and astronomy can be observed, explored, and analyzed constructively. In this way, the morphological content of natural sciences can inspire the creative process and form the style and expression of architecture.
The political perspective in a development like this will affect mainly departments of town planning and environmental changes and will result in industrial projects in energy and transport. In this day and age, when global warming is a growing problem and more and more CO2 is discharged into the atmosphere, those projects in energy and transport that do not use liquid fuel may have political meaning and effect. The ambition with this book, however, is limited to hopefully be a part of the debate in architecture about style, where functionalism and postmodernism seem to be a thing of the past in many ways.
