2,4,5 Geometry in Architecture

Geometry
Geometry is a branch of math that deals with shapes and points in space.
Shapes such as triangles and circles are related to geometry
Architecture
Architecture is a scientific study that deals with buildings and structures.
If you look at architecture(building, houses, etc.) you will see that shapes are in them.
- look at the pictures below for examples.

When I see this I think of geometery because it is
circular to maintian its shape it has to evenly spread
__it's surface area over a wide area.__

.This is a basic design it has allot of leverage and has all 90 degree angles in it.

This is a hard design. It is a dome it is a hollow half sphere and is made of arches.
It has a little bit of leverage.

This is a triangle building design. It has the most leverage.

When i think of architecture i think of tower of cards. It takes alot of
special planning for a card to go in exactly the right place.angles and
leverage are used alot in building a tower of cards

In this photo it illustrates how you can use certain shapes to gain leverage
to hold up a structure like this

This design has alot to do with circles and they are hard to build with cause they cant get much leverage.

Looking at this design it looks like upstate new york. Lots of buildings there
are just rectangles with cubicle windows. Others have some design to them
but not much except for a triangle on a square.
