The reason is that if you are looking at such books for inspiration, you will likely be recreating the same looks in one form or another. So going forward, I have divided the books into 3 categories, namely Thinking, Process and Designer Skills. Thinking by Mark H.

Entstanden an der Schnittstelle von Kunst, Architektur, Ingenieurswissenschaften und Biomimetik besteht die Installation aus einem überraschend einfachen System: Beruhend auf der Wirkungsweise biologischer Systeme reagiert die Installation auf Klimaveränderungen in der sie umgebenden, raumgroßen Vitrine durch selbsttätige Formveränderungen des Materials. Die Installation wird im Centre Pompidou in Paris von Mai bis August 2012 anlässlich der Ausstellung »Multiversités Créatives« erstmalig gezeigt.
