Drawing instruments, engineering methods and representation systems in Sixteenth- through Eighteenth Centuries fortification design / Alfonso Muñoz Cosme

11015 Capítulo en monografía

With a view to understanding how fortifications were designed, this chapter first studies
military engineers’ drawing, surveying and stake-out instruments. It then describes design
methods by analysing layouts, dimensional and trigonometric tables and conceptual maxims
or rules and the respective results. Lastly, both mock-up and two-dimensional representation
systems are reviewed.
Analysing and cross-referencing the findings for each of the aforementioned facets
afford a fuller understanding of the nature of sixteenth- through eighteenth-century fortification
design. Initially associated with natural determinants, such design was transformed
in Baroque construction into the repetition of geometric prototypes, only to revert
to an inductive, albeit regulated, approach in the transition to neo-classicism.

Notas

P. 17-43.
