Karl Gerstners Arbeit ist ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Gestaltung. Eines seiner wichtigsten Werke war "Programme entwerfen," das hier in einer Neuauflage der Originalpublikation von 1964 erscheint. In vier Essays stellt der Autor die Grundlagen seiner gestalterischen Methode dar. Die damals gezeigte Methode zum Entwerfen zeigt keine Rezepte, sondern ein Modell fA1/4r das Entwerfen im beginnenden Computerzeitalter. Dass Buch liefert aber auch heute noch anwendbare Denkmodelle, allerdings keine LAsungen, kein richtig oder falsch, nichts Absolutes - sondern Grundlegendes ist hier auf innovative, in die zukunftweisende Art erarbeitet. Gerade vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Entwicklungen im Computational Design, das uns die MAglichkeit von programmierter Gestaltung vorhAlt, gewinnt dieses Buch an Spannung und AktualitAt. Die vielen Beispiele aus Grafik und Produktdesign, Musik, Architektur und Kunst regen dazu an, das Gezeigte weiterzudenken und in die eigene Arbeit zu integrieren.
