D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson's Generative Influences in Art, Design, and Architecture

March 26, 2021
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Event Description

Scottish zoologist D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson's visionary ideas in On Growth and Form continue to evolve a century after its publication, aligning it with current developments in art and science. In this new book published by Bloomsbury, practitioners, theorists and historians from art, science and design reflect on his ongoing influence. Overall, the anthology links evolutionary theory to form generation in both scientific and cultural domains. It offers a close look at the ways cells, organisms, and rules become generative in fields often otherwise disconnected.
