Principles of Three-Dimensional Design : Objects, Space and Meaning
For courses in Three-Dimensional Art.This text provides a thorough examination of form and organization concepts, and sets them in artistic, cultural, and theoretical contexts accessible to beginning students. It covers the traditional principles of an introduction to three-dimensional design, but with a slant that shows them how to be viable and effective while linked to more contemporary approaches. This necessitates illustrations taken from highly diverse societies, and a large number of examples drawn from nature and science.

Back cover copy
This text is a thorough introduction to three-dimensional design: the importance of forms and objects in space. It covers the areas of problem solving: form/plane/space relationships. Of equal importance is its unique coverage of functional, cultural, and spatial contexts that condition the meanings we impart in creating objects. Its underlying goal is to provide a practical and theoretical understanding of how objects and the spaces they occupy shape the physical and perceptual nature of our reality.
