Design and Nature




The following three books will be of interest to all those concerned with the
inspiration for design to be found in nature, including architects; artists;
designers and researchers.






Design & Intuition:

Structures, Interiors and the Mind


C. LEWIS KAUSEL
, Mount Ida College, USA

Short description:

Design and Intuition: Structures, Interiors and the Mind

unravels veiled relationships observed by
the author which are present in some
important architecture and crafts. These designs are thoroughly
analyzed in the book, and the author explains them with the help of illustrations and discussion.


As the book unfolds a cultural phenomenon emerges. Architectural evocations in other crafts
reflect
that the public has its own dialogue with design. The attachments and responses of the public to
design are many times a phenomenon worthy of being analyzed. The book gives out interesting
findings about the mind and how it transforms design.


Thi
s book is a gateway to understanding the transformations that result from the interplay between
design and culture. It will interest designers, researchers and insightful lay readers who appreciate
unforgettable design.

Colour in Art, Design and Nature


Edited by:
C.A. BREBBIA
, Wessex Institute of Technology, UK;
C. GREATED
, University of
Edinburgh, UK and
M.W. COLLINS
, (Formerly Br
unel University, UK)

Short description:

Colour in Art, Design and Nature

is ambitiously inter
-
disciplinary. Its eleven works, in full colour,
form a striking contribution to the commonwealth of colour studies and to a possible unification of
C. P. Snow's
Two Cultures.


It seems that our perceptions of aesthetics and beauty must be very flexible indeed so as to find
absolute opposites equally fascinating. If so, it goes to show how wonderful are the construction and
operation of the human brain. Does psych
ology win in the end? Does colour lead to a single culture?"
