Scope and content:

Series 3, Academic works, 1995 - 2011, relates to Bernard Cache’s work as a scholar and author. This series includes born-digital material and chiefly dates from 1999 to 2007.

Cache pursued and academic career, teaching and lecturing at many universities while also publishing books and articles. His area of interest revolves around computational architecture, geometrics, history of geometric, stereotomy, engineering and philosophy. These records depict his investment in the study of the relation between ancient theory and the field of computational architecture drawings with CAD or BIM software. His work concentrates on prominent figures such as Greek mathematician Euclid to Roman architect Vitruvius and German painter and theorist Albrecht Dürer.

Materials in this series reflect Bernard Cache’s work as a scholar. This includes notes for his articles and lectures as well as drafts for different lectures and texts. It also contains syllabi and planning materials for classes given by Cache on Non-Standard Design and Production in Architecture. The series holds a significant amount of images used for presentation or as examples during those lectures and classes (in JPEG and BMP formats). Those images are for the most part derived from CAD original drawings in TopSolid.
