Review quote

"This book is one of the first accounts of the current dereliction of traditional design caused by the severe and profound influence of digital culture. . . . It is filled with fascinating accounts of blobs, nurbs, catastrophes, perfomativity, parametricism, anamorphoses, deformational morphologies, topological singularities, genetic-inspired algorithmics, and biomachinic mutations--among other things." --Choice
