A special section guest edited by architectural designer and educator Cameron Wu responds to the many geometries seen in contemporary forms. How do we reanimate geometry as a design protagonist rather than a mere design enabler or incidental outcome? The responses from architects include Peter Carl’s interest in rhythm, Iman Fayyad’s perspectival anomalies, Patrik Schumacher’s advocation of tectonism, George L. Legendre’s form haiku, and Andrew Witt’s concept of “grayboxing”. Additionally, Wu offers geometric analyses of five recent buildings, while Olafur Eliasson, Preston Scott Cohen, and Henry N. Cobb talk about their advanced uses of geometry.
