"From design and analysis, to project construction and delivery, to new materials and techniques, the book carefully collects top authors, content, and case studies to help explicate what the editor describes as "energy-free architectural design". As well illustrated as it is written, this book convincingly merges the range of historical, technical, theoretical, and architectural obligations that presuppose our understanding of higher-performance buildings."

"Beorkrem’s new book brings together what an inquisitive mind desires – an unravelling of the complexities and contradictions found in the built form. In each carefully selected case study, he systematically picks apart the design intentions, tools’capabilities and material limitations, and reveals the real invention and experimentation behind the photogenic work. This book introduces a different mode of formal analysis that acknowledges a new form of design intelligence. It succeeds in demystifying the problems of complex forms, and makes a renewed attempt in connecting architects deeply with the tools that are increasingly available in fabrication plants around the world."
