Geometry of Pasta

Published by patrick honner on

This is a fun slideshow of images from architect George Legendre’s book “Pasta by Design”

The slideshow, from the on-line New York Times Style magazine, shows a few different renderings of pasta shapes.  The book, apparently, contains actual cooking directions as well as these technical schematics.

It appears as though Legendre used a graphing utility like Mathematica or Maple to sketch out his pastas.  A creative, and fun, application of this technology!

That’s great stuff, Sol! Even though it’s mostly random, I think I like the spaghetti graph the best. Thanks for sharing.
