  • The linkages Witt explores involve not the mystic transcendence of numbers invoked throughout architectural history
  • but rather architecture’s encounters with a range of calculational systems—techniques that architects inventively retooled for design
  • Witt presents a series of extensively illustrated “biographies of method”—episodes that chart the myriad ways in which mathematics, particularly the mathematical notion of modeling and drawing, was spliced into the creative practice of design
  • Trained in both architecture and mathematics, Witt uses mathematics as a lens through which to understand the relationship between architecture and a much broader set of sciences and visual techniques
  • Through an intercultural exchange with other disciplines, he argues, architecture adapted not only the shapes and surfaces of mathematics but also its values and epistemic ideals
