My previous post (a while ago now sorry – Christmas got in the way!) was about patterns in nature, but if you live in a city you can see patterns all around you too. Humans have taken inspiration from nature since the beginning of time: just as there’s geometry in nature with patterns in crystals, plants and skies, humans have also used geometric patterns to style their habitats throughout the ages…leading me to discuss the application of maths in another of my favourite topics: beauty in architecture & urban environments!
This week I thought I’d collect together examples of two of my favourite things colliding: nature and maths! Patterns are everywhere around us, you have only to look 🙂
I hope the beauty displayed below inspires people to create some of these or see them in nature for yourself – and in doing so, you’ll be unwittingly maths-ing!
