Based on the 2001 expansion of the Cowles Mathematics Building on the University of Utah campus, this book is a catalog and commentary of that project. The book, like the mural it describes, develops structural connections with the arts, sciences, and culture while conveying the range and beauty of mathematics.
Anna Campbell Bliss holds a master's degree in architecture from Harvard University and was a student of Gyorgy Kepes at MIT. A sucessful Utah based artist, her work is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Utah Museum of Fine Art.
A publication of Bliss Studio Publications. Distributed non-exclusively worldwide by the American Mathematical Society.
General mathematical audience.
"This small paperbound book is an extraordinary blend of mathematics, art and design."
-- Inter-Society Color Council News
"Bliss has created an astonishingly beautiful work of art, which I'm sure will inspire students, artists and mathematicians that work in the "House" for a long time to come. If you cannot make it to Utah to view the artwork in person, then the purchase of this delightful book will be a great addition to the 'inspirational section' of your personal library."
