What Sasaki proposes in his projects is nothing less than an engineering revolution - an overturning of traditional empirical methods in favour of new kinds of shape analysis that use the principles of evolution and self-organisation of living creatures, adapted from an engineering standpoint, to generate rational structural shapes with a computer. The resulting architecture flows and melts in structural terms - it is 'flux structure'. This publication describes the morphogenesis of the concept of flux structure through four projects - Island City Central Park and Kakamigahara Crematorium (with Toyo Ito) and Qatar Education City Convention Centre and Florence New Station (with Arata Isozaki).
