Design and Architecture is it just a myth?
Math has been around forever trying to explain why something works the way it does and there is no exception when it comes to Architecture. Geometry shows how basic shapes work together to make structures that can last throughout time. The first picture shows how these shapes fit together like a jig saw puzzle to make a structure like the other pictures that I have posted. The study of such mathematical concepts as ratios, proportions, scales, and symmetry highlight the unique inter-relationship between the two disciplines. No matter if the building is huge like the freedom tower or small like a lego tower the concepts learned through mathematics are used the same way to build a structure that will stand up to all oppositions. The lecture described how Pythagoras used numbers to demonstrate basic order in space. Also CAD was designed and revovles around mathematics and now Architecture can be made without even physically making something. These pictures are of a math building and ironically you can see the symmetry and mathematics at work in this building.
