### 7 Classical mathematics in Architecture

Continuing my introduction to geometries and mathematics in architecture, I have made a short list of 7 classical uses of mathematics in design.

These are not comprehensive or detailed, but I used these as an introduction to parametric design to Architectural students when I was teaching.

The Golden Section

Fibonacci…

### 11 BASIC CLASSICAL GEOMETRIES IN ARCHITECTURE

In my ongoing attempt to collect some basic data for parametric architects to use, I wrote a short outline of basic geometries.

# 11 CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURAL GEOMETRIES

The type and use of geometry in architecture is a fundamental element of the variation between styles or language of architecture. The type of geometry is often conflated with meaning. One concept is that architectural style-isms like art swing between periods of “romanticism” and “realism”. With “romantic” being…
