Polygons, Pillars and Pavilions: Discovering Connections between Geometry and Architecture
Madden, Sean Patrick
Journal of Catholic Education, v20 n2 Article 11 Mar 2017
Crowning the second semester of geometry, taught within a Catholic middle school, the author's students explored connections between the geometry of regular polygons and architecture of local buildings. They went on to explore how these principles apply famous buildings around the world such as the monuments of Washington, D.C. and the elliptical piazza of Saint Peter's Basilica at Vatican City within Rome, Italy.
