So, visiting Milan and wandering round the lovely Cathedral (one of the largest in Europe) I was struck by the geometry all around!
This week – in holiday mode some interesting sites on Mathematics and architecture:
From Tripbase, 9 Most Mathematically Interesting Buildings in the World and from Flavorwire, 10 Amazing Examples of Architecture Inspired by Mathematics. There is some overlap between these two lists, both mention quite rightly the cathedral in Barcelona Designed by Antoni Gaudi. For some great mathematical photos from Barcelona – see these previous two posts.
For some further reading Plus Magazine has an article on Perfect buildings: the maths of modern architecture by Marianne Freiberger.
