On the spline
The article tells the origin and different development stages of computational curves from the perspectives of shipbuilding, automobile, aerospace, animation, architecture. Mathematical operations, construction technology and business push each other and limit each other. Nowadays parametric architectures are often discussed as a hot topic among architects. Is it worthwhile to use a lot of resources to build buildings built with complex curves? What are the benefits of promoting such building technology to popularize curved buildings for our daily lives?
