Grid Index by Carsten Nicolai has been cited as a visual dictionary on dimensional grids and patterns that underpin all of the key systematic elements within all aspects of design work that form an array of compositions from art, architecture and science. Nicolai, a former gardener who studied landscape design claims his background provided him with the inspiration to create Grid Index. He says “many more complex patterns are in life organizations or inside the organization of life forms; they are part of the foundation of our life. Mathematics is basically a part of nature.”
The book, an essential resource for designers, architects and mathematicians, also comprises of a CD-ROM with fully editable vector graphic files. This resource holds a wealth of potential to map out the underlying grids of any single image or form while demonstrating recurring geometrical grids that lays crucial foundations for technical graphic design.
