This two-volume edited assortment provides an in depth portrait of the ways that likely varied disciplines are interconnected.

Thereafter he analyses the application of one of the most efficient aperiodic sets—the Penrose tiling created by mathematician Roger Penrose (b. 1931)—in the refurbishment of Storey Hall in Melbourne, Australia. Ostwald’s chapter finishes with a discussion of various tiling properties that are yet to be fully examined by architects. This interest in tiling surfaces is continued in ‘Paving the Alexanderplatz Efficiently with a Quasi-Periodic Tiling’ (Chap. 79), by Ulrich Kortenkamp, which describes a method for tiling a large, non-rectangular space.
