The Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids belong to the group of geometric figures called polyhedra. A polyhedron is a solid bounded by plane polygons. The polygons are called faces; they intersect in edges, the points where three or more edges intersect are called vertices.

A regular polyhedron is one whose faces are identical regular polygons. A classic examination of superb design through the centuries. Widely regarded as a classic in the field, Experiencing Architecture explores the history and promise of good design.

Generously illustrated with historical examples of designing excellence―ranging from teacups, riding boots, and golf balls to the villas of Palladio and the fish-feeding pavilion of Beijing's Winter Palace /5(39).

structure and architecture are possible. In the ‘high tech’ architecture of the s (Fig. iv), for example, the structural elements discipline the plan and general arrangement of the building and form an important part of the visual vocabulary.

In the early Modern buildings of. In object-oriented computer programming, SOLID is a mnemonic acronym for five design principles intended to make software designs more understandable, flexible and is not related to the GRASP software design principles.

The principles are a subset of many principles promoted by American software engineer and instructor Robert C. Martin. The Platonic solids are prominent in the philosophy of Plato, their namesake.

Plato wrote about them in the dialogue Timaeus c. B.C. in which he associated each of the four classical elements (earth, air, water, and fire) with a regular solid.

Earth was associated with the cube, air with the octahedron, water with the icosahedron, and fire. JAMES MCQUILLAN– Review of Architecture and Geometry in the Age of the Baroque absent.

Many solids are crystalline, which means that they have atoms or ions or molecules arranged in an ordered pattern. For instance, think about NaCl.

This ionic solid has an alternating arrangement of Na + and Cl-ions, as shown in the image below.

The Architect’s Home, a handsome new book edited by Gennaro Postiglione, professor of design at Milan Polytechnic, is a decidedly weighty tome –its pages are dedicated to architects. This book offers an in-depth look at space frame architecture, including space frame projects completed by such notable architects as I.

Pei, Buckminster Fuller, Philip Johnson and Louis Kahn. Both theory and practice are included to offer a comprehensive overview of the history, current use, and future outlook for creating space frame structures.4/5(1).

This Architecture book contains a fantastic overview about the fundamentals of construction, including building components, sustainability issues, and building codes. This is the book every architecture school uses to teach students about building construction. Platonic solid, any of the five geometric solids whose faces are all identical, regular polygons meeting at the same three-dimensional known as the five regular polyhedra, they consist of the tetrahedron (or pyramid), cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron.

Pythagoras (c. bc) probably knew the tetrahedron, cube, and dodecahedron. Roman Architecture. Slide View of Pompeii with Mt. Vesuvius in the Background.

From the beginning of her career, Turner has used architecture as subject matter. Ambiguity has always been a hallmark of her work where solids become voids, causing positive and negative to reverse. The photos are small fragments of architecture taken out of context. Through her eyes, the subject is decomposed and recreated, assuming a new.

Have you ever looked at some building and thought “All right, that is very, very pretty and solids are in harmony and elements are proportional, but, gosh, how boring it is!”.

Architecture can be described as the practice of combining and rearranging platonic solids to create an attractive and usable space. Up until recently this additive process of form making was limited to a linear one, wherein the author of the structure manually stacked, flipped and rotated platonic solids to achieve a desired singular end result.

The book explains form and space in relation to light, view, openings, and enclosures and explores the organization of space, and the elements and relationships of circulation, as well as proportion and scale.Quantum architecture of novel solids.
