Design and Math
Math plays an important role in architecture. Two projects designed by the Baroque Architect Borromini show the use of math and geometry in his designs. In his building San alle Quatre Fontane he created an unusually shaped central planned church by initially taking two circles than by using math he created the shape of the church plan.
In a second masterpiece San Ivo Della Sapienza, he used circles and triangles to create an unique design for the floorplan. The plan turned out be similar to the shape of a bee, the symbol for the Barberini family, an important family in Rome.
