How calculus is changing architecture

All snarks about $24M mansions being funded by calculus textbook sales aside, there is an emerging relationship between calculus and architecture that is really fascinating. Since WordPress.com now allows direct embedding of TED talks, I thought I’d share this talk from architect Greg Lynn on this subject. I ran across this a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been wondering about it ever since. The point about using calculus to change architecture from a “discrete” notion into a “continuous” notion is particularly interesting.
