 "Query: Why is mathematics used in architecture?" in the Nexus Network Journal
Anyway, mathematically based methods of design, to the extent they are likely to have been used, seem to have been part of the builders’ planning tools, and not something the clients were bothered with.
Perhaps the simplest form of mathematical building is that which involves the use of prcise canons or measures - hence achitecture might also be defined as 'rational building' - especially when the use of a regular canon or measure enables the introduction of symmetry (or common measures) and hence, of modules.
The role of mathematics in architecture wold make an excellent conference topic (I mean the general theory or philosophy of mathematics and architecture, as opposed to particular examples of their interrelations).
