Reflection In Art And Architecture

889 Words4 Pages
Initially, I thought symmetry was just a simple function of geometry e.g. reflection only, taught in mathematics since primary school. I didn’t know it was an important form in art and architecture till I enrolled onto this course. It was very enlightening to see how symmetry can be furthered explored and how the mathematics involved can be further deepened, e.g. figuring out space groups and planes and axes or unit cells. And since taking this course, I began to view the things around me differently, from logos to patterns to architectures. I began to appreciate symmetry even more, and have understood about the concepts even more. My most favourite part was the symmetry in crystals part, as I’m very interested in geomancy and “birth” stones/crystals since young.
