Geometry of Life-Supporting Forms in an Architectural Design

By Radan Volnohradský


Process of visual perception described in the first article is elaborately explored by neuroesthetic. It is a link to understand incoming images and reactions in brain. In this context it points out significance and beauty of fractal structures. Fractals and their use in urban design are content of next chapter. Than the focus is on explaining harmonic proportions (primarily Golden mean) and geometric forms which are mostly found in fractals. It is mentioned basic Pythagorean geometry with its metaphysical aspects. Same aspects are hidden in mysterious picture Flower of life and its geometrical transformation to Platonic solids - the matrix of universe. At the end the relation between geometry and architectural design is revealed and substantiated
