Fractal Geometry Fractal Geometry: Being the most prominent aspect of Chaos, fractal geometry has the power to describe the complexity of nature. Two essential properties of fractal geometry are self-similarity and infinite details. Mandelbrot set provides a lucid example of this kind of geometry.

Chaos Chaos: the science of chaos deals with deterministic yet non-linear systems in nature. The science of chaos has developed a new geometry that takes nature the way it is without abstraction or reduction. Snow flakes, blood vein distribution of human body, zigzag shape of coastline, turbulence, the swirl configuration of galaxies are only a few examples to new geometry attempts to unravel.

Erectheum, Porch of the Maidens Athens, the Erectheum, Porch of the Maidens, begun in 421 BC. An architectural form signifies the anthropocentric cosmology.

Conceptual Dialogue of New and Existing The dome at the existing planetarium assumes the role of a heavenly body that causes the surrounding space-time fabric, the new planetarium in this case, to distort. Through the warping curtain wall as a response to the existing planetarium dome, a conceptual dialogue between the existing and the new planetariums is thus established.

Geometrical Synthesis The geometry of Beijing Planetarium expresses a systhesis of two cosmic realms by juxtaposing space warp and quantum particles with strings weaving in between.

Caesariano’s Vitruvian Man Caesariano’s Vitruvian Figure: Vitruvian human figure demonstrates the anthropocentric approach in Greek architecture. The perfect circle and sphere around the human figure are employed to provide a proof of the proportional perfection of human body. The use of such proof in turn, suggests the dominating power of Euclidean geometry in Greek architecture.

Origin: A Provocative Depiction of Human Evolution Daniel Lee is not an expert in evolutionary theory, but he’s got ideas about where we came from. He doesn’t try to pass them off as scientific truth; instead he makes his ideas into anything-but-primitive digital images intended as provocative art. His series titled “Origin” depicts human evolution in 12 pictures, from the fish form (as Coelacanth) eventually transforming to reptiles, apes and humans.
