Using an array of AKT II projects to demonstrate the results of a design-led approach in modern engineering.
An emphasis on design is rising to the forefront of modern engineering and is central to the way in which AKT II approach their discipline. The use of information technology is called upon more and more in order to streamline structures and refine previously impractical forms and shapes.
Design Engineering discusses the developments in the industry, using AKT II projects to illustrate these, grouped into themes such as ‘Complexity’, ‘Process’ and ‘Extremes’. For each project, the process and the design are discussed in technical depth, interpolated with images and structural line drawings. Essays and dialogues from fellow designers and academics complete the picture.
