BASIC GEOMETRIC SHAPES
Architecture is the science of building. Architects understand the natural laws of gravity and their affects upon mass. There are four basic geometric shapes used by architects in designing buildings. They are the circle, square, triangle, and rectangle. A building may use one or a combination of the shapes in its design. When we study a building's design, we see the shapes as three-dimensional. As you look at each image in the kit see if you can spot them.
