Michael Leyton: Architectural Projects.





Professor Michael Leyton.

The basic principles of my architectural designs are that architecture should maximize

(1) Memory

(2) Emotional expression.

(3) Complexity of action.

(1) The maximization of memory is achieved by the mathematical principles presented in my book Symmetry, Causality, Mind (MIT Press), which is a 630 page rule system for the extraction of past-history from shape data. (2) The maximization of emotional expression is achieved by the mathematical theory of expression given in my forthcoming book The Structure of Paintings. And (3) the maximization of complexity of action is achieved by the algebraic theory in my book, A Generative Theory of Shape (Springer-Verlag).

The entire theory is the basis of the following designs:
