Mathematics and Architecture
The link between math and architecture goes back to ancient times, when the two disciplines were virtually indistinguishable. Pyramids and temples were some of the earliest examples of mathematical principles at work. Today, math continues to feature prominently in building design. We’re not just talking about mere measurements — though elements like that are integral to architecture. Thanks to modern technology, architects can explore a variety of exciting design options based on complex mathematical languages, allowing them to build groundbreaking forms. Take a look at several structures past the break that were modelled after mathematics.

Why have I been staring at this for 5 minutes?
do you know how awesome this is.
i hate it when music videos have those really long intros like i just want to listen to music i ain’t got time to watch a two minute long intro that doesn’t make sense
