Architecture and Mathematics in Ancient Egypt by Corinna Rossi
English | 15 Apr. 2004 | ISBN: 0521829542 | 304 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
In this fascinating study, architect and Egyptologist Corinna Rossi analyses the relationship between mathematics and architecture in ancient Egypt by exploring the use of numbers and geometrical figures in ancient architectural projects and buildings. While previous architectural studies have searched for abstract 'universal rules' to explain the history of Egyptian architecture, Rossi attempts to reconcile the different approaches of archaeologists, architects and historians of mathematics into a single coherent picture.
