Message from the Editors

As this extremely challenging year draws near its end, we wanted to take a moment to send our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful authors. It is always a priviledge to work with such inspiring and committed individuals and this year, perhaps more than any other, has emphasised what a truly outstanding group of writers we have been fortunate enough to publish with over the years.

With over 100 new titles published in 2020 on a diverse array of subjects within architecture, progress is not slowing as we continue to work from our home offices. Our publishing seeks to connect authors with readers, to answer questions, to pose questions, to provide guidance, provocation and inspiration to the student, the researcher and the professional. We look forward to continuing and expanding these connections and conversations in the new year. We wish all of our authors and readers a peaceful and restful holiday season and most of all, a happier 2021.

Series Spotlight

Bio Design

The first book in the Bio Design series has published! This series offers the opportunity for designers from fields as diverse as architecture, fashion design and product design to present and explore designs and design research which use living systems as part of their production and operation. The series offers readers in depth project descriptions, analysis of processes and the intellectual contexts of Bio Design. Such explorations have not, until now, been made available in long form. The series also allows designers to explore the potentials and challenges of bio design as an emerging field of design and research.

Martyn Dade-Robertson's book Living Construction reveals how living cells construct and transform materials through methods of fabrication and assembly at multiple scales and how designers can utilize these processes. For designers, across a range of disciplines, emerging fields such as synthetic biology offer the promise of new sustainable materials and structures which may be grown, are self-assembling, are self-healing and adaptable to change. This is the first book to show designers exactly how they can use these processes and demonstrates realized design applications.
