The Geometry of Modern Architecture

Who said that architecture is only about rectangular shapes and straight lines? Indeed, the architects have always tried to make their creations unique, experimenting with forms, shapes, and lines in their projects. Rounded shapes are among the finest and the most delicate shapes in architecture. Actually, it is the use of such unusual shapes and non-traditional approaches to the design of buildings that turns architecture into a specific form of true art. Indeed, even if you look at the ancient temples, churches, and castles with their arches and domes – you’ll see that even ancient architects treated circles and ovals to be some premium shapes in architecture design.

Today the architecture design is more diverse than it has ever been before. Modern building materials and construction techniques make it possible to realize virtually any architectural concept and idea. That is why we have now so many buildings, which impress and astonish with the unusualness of their forms, complete deliverance from the dogmas and prejudices about how an office building, a residential house, or a city museum should look. In our today’s showcase we wanted to focus on the modern architecture, where oval shapes are in the spotlight. Looking at the pictures of such buildings, one can really lose the feeling of time, because many of the architectural masterpieces, we display below, really look like they came from the far future times and civilizations…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
