Why appear Zaha Hadid s structures to be dynamic structures? those and plenty of different concerns are addressed in "Basics". In an instantaneous disagreement of textual content and images of overseas structures, that means and influence of simple architectural components are studied either discretely and inside of compounds ranging from Wassily Kandinsky s visible arts comparable research "Point and Line to Plane". Transferred on normal and synthetic items, the influence of those parts isn't based at the exterior visual appeal yet really at the rigidity inherent to kinds. therefore, the second version of this common ebook is now on hand in English. it's been revised and a foreword through structure theorist Otto Kapfinger extra.

Spatial Arrangement Non-directional point-elements can be arbitrarily placed in relation to other different sized point-elements. These relations determine force of expression and cohesion, as Wassily Kandinsky shows in a study on painting.

The structure of curved lines is governed by the laws of geometry. Thus, for example, every round arch has a fixed center and is determined by its radius. Curved lines shift direction at their inflection points. Depending on their curvature they suggest a closer or more distant center. suggested center Umberto Boccioni, a member of the Italian Futurist movement, writes the following about sculptural dynamism.
