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

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