[Design]. Pearce, Peter.

Structure in nature is a strategy for design, from the library of Robertson Ward, F.A.I.A.

MIT Press Cambridge 1978 Quarto. pp xvii, 245. b/w photographs throughout. Bibliography.
A novel, creative approach to design (and to nature!). Very comprehensive treatment, fascinatingly illustrated. "Pearce's work follows in the tradition established by D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson and Konrad Wachsmann, and reflects his earlier close working association with Charles Eames and Buckminster Fuller. With Eames, he contributed to the design of seating and other furniture systems, and he edited the preliminary text of Fuller's Synergetics, that grand summary of his thoughts, and prepared the illustrations for the published version of that book." Uncommon.
