Geometry is Beautiful in
Cylinder: The surface traced by a straight line moving parallel to a fixed straight line and intersecting a fixed planar closed curve.
The BMW World, Headquarters is designed around 8 cylinders and is a beautiful display of architectural design.
Sphere: A three-dimensional shape that looks like a ball.
The dome of the Theatine Church forms a semi-sphere or half of a sphere. It is a feature that can be found in many churches of the same time period.
Rectangular Prism: A solid (3-dimensional) object which has six faces that are rectangles.
The rectangular prisms shown here at Nymphenburg are a stunning display of symmetry and structural design.
Triangle: A plane figure with three straight sides and three angles.
The tops of the arches at Neuhausen-Nymphenburg are a "sharp" feature of this city building. The design displays power and strength.
Cone: a solid or hollow object that tapers from a circular or roughly circular base to a point.
The building to the left of the town center has a cone topping the bell tower. This cone is an example of many found around Germany which may be referenced to the many famous castles located here.
Decagon: a plane figure with ten straight sides and angles
The front side of the Hofbrauhaus has a "rounded" face with five windows. If each window is considered to be a side of a polygon and the pattern continued to form a closed figure, it would have ten sides. This shape may have influenced the choice of street lights.
