Squaring the Circle
Geometry in Art & Architecture

by Paul Calter


A dynamic branch of mathematics, geometry also serves as a creative tool for engineers, artists, and architects. Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture is the first textbook to cover both art and geometry extensively. The text's wide-ranging exercise sets and related projects allow students to practice and master the mathematics presented. Each chapter introduces mathematical concepts geometrically and illustrates their nontraditional applications in art and architecture throughout the centuries.
