IDEAL GEOMETRY

WHY IS THERE A NEED TO CREATE MUTANTS, AND WHAT MOTIVATES US TO DO THAT ?

 

The application of geometry was seen as one way in which human beings could improve

the imperfect world in which they found themselves. Geometric purity was thus seen

as a touchstone of the human ability, or perhaps duty, to make the world better. It is in this sense

that ideal geometry, as a way of imposing order on the world, is a characteristic of the ‘temple’.

 

The result was that architects produced designs for buildings which were composed

using perfect figures and geometric ratios. This, for example, is a copy of Wittkower’s diagrams of the geometric composition of the façade of the church of S.Maria Novella in Florence, designed By Leon Battista Alberti and builtin the fifteenth century.

 

Hence whenever we find something that reminds us of something tangible or intangible , we start finding an ideal geometry to make that tangible a perfect geometry , albetri and other renaissance did that with squares, circles etc .Today modern day architects like mohe make mutants by first drawing abstract images of the tangibles and then find perfect shapes, hence architecture helps one to perfect the imperfect world around you . But a non artistic approach of trying to create the perfect shape will be disaster, as the product has to continue make u remind of the tangibles and hence create a dialogue
