Cinemetrics - Architectural Drawing Today Brian McGrath and Jean Gardner Wiley, 2007, £26.99.

The premise of the authors, who teach in New York at Columbia and Parsons, is that computers are changing the way we perceive and design space. Brunelleschi's geometrical system of perspective is being replaced by cybernetic systems to depict built form. Drawing on cinematography, this book presents a range of techniques for framing images using digital technologies, culminating in uid space. This is an interesting take on simulation generally, and on how we can control 3D imagery rather than letting it control us, but black-and-white graphics do not do justice to the interesting content.
