Morpho-Ecologies ed. Michael Hensel and Achim Menges AA Publications, 2006, £20.00 Morpho-Ecologies, a design approach developed by Hensel and Menges through their teaching at the AA, is based on the premise that the morphological and performative capacities of materials should be the starting point for design. The text is dense, but addresses a fundamental question: should form come first, and materials second, or the other way around? The images are stunning.
