Polyhedra in architecture. Part 5


Architects have used the elements of polyhedra in designing their constructions since ancient times. Nowadays this approach distinguishes buildings among thousands of others.

The Ministry of Defense in USA has the shape of a regular pentagon.



The name “Pentagon”, familiar to everyone, comes from the Greek “penta” which means "five" and reflects the pentagonal shape of the building.
