Chapter Summary

This chapter serves to define a few concepts and comparative methodologies for shape creation in the two disciplines of civil (terrestrial) and naval (maritime) architecture. It examines the shape creation process of conceptual design, construction and fabrication in terms of the knowledge required at each stage. This knowledge is intimately linked with the media of concept documentation and with the methodical tools of construction, fabrication and assembly. Shape creation in both architectures aims at the definition and realization of three-dimensional physical objects that possess volume properties and are bounded by exterior surfaces. The chapter presents a short list of major events and in particular publications or citations that have played an important role in developing or documenting a similar consciousness in the two architectures.

Keywords: civil architecture; naval architecture; shape creation
