Mathematics in Art and Architecture

Comment: I have not dabbled much into the creating and planing of buildings, however; I did take a engineering class for fun in high school. We had to draw out a floor plan and calculate the square footage and the many dimensions. So reading this material brings me back to that, but the math in all the arts was what grabbed hold of my attention. Being a practitioner of the arts I love to see how mathematics can be used in all media. This brings me to one of my favorite moments in my schooling so far. For my final in senior year Studio Art I had to scale a picture on a piece of paper the size of a postage stamp to fit a 12 by 14 foot wall. Never really having a strong calculating background it was hard to put it simply.
