Title: Mathematics in Architecture
Url: http://teachersinstitute.yale.edu/curriculum/guides/1984/1/84.01.04.x....
Creator: Fox, Lauretta J.
Publisher: Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute
Description: To produce structures that are functional as well as models of architectural beauty, designers must apply principles of mathematics in their work. Scale drawings, commonly known as plans, are used as patterns in the construction of buildings. Proper ratios and proportions relate each feature of a building with every other one and with the whole structure to obtain a pleasing appearance. This unit addresses basic mathematical principles used in architecture, discussing the concepts of measurement, scale drawing, ratio, proportion, and symmetry.
