Mathematics Inspires Architecture at The Palace Hotel
The link between math and architecture goes back to ancient times, when the two disciplines were virtually indistinguishable. Pyramids and temples were some of the earliest examples of mathematical principles at work. Today, math continues to feature prominently in building design.
Take a Closer Look at the Shape of Perth
Palassis Architects: has shaped Perth buildings through conservation and adaptive reuse of a group of five significant heritage buildings on St Georges Terrace (Old Perth Boys School, Perth Technical School, Royal Insurance Buildings, WA Trustees Buildings and Newspaper House), the construction of a multi-storey tower behind the heritage buildings, and creation of visual and physical connections between the old and new buildings.

See how they transformed Brookfield Place into an award winning business and a leisure destination.
The tower at Brookfield Place embraces the aspirations of the building’s owner to provide a flexible collaborative workplace for its occupants. Knowledge sharing and collaboration underpinned the design philosophy. This approach resulted in a side-core commercial tower with complete visual connectivity across the open plan floors, which is further reinforced by the vertical connections through generous stair and void zones.
The second highest building in City of Perth, Australia. Tower has completed in 2012. The height of antenna spire is 244 meters and there are 46 floors.
Take your First Steps toward CAD design with geometrical shape making activities:
Making Simple Objects made simple with the Shape Maker: transform 2D shapes into simple 3D objects.|Start with a circle, triangle, square or rectangle.
More Complex Shapes: transform some complex 2D shapes into 3D objects by extruding or spinning them.|Start by choosing a shape such as a cross, trapezium, T-shape …
Mystery Shapes: explore some weird and wonderful shapes! While watching this clip, think about the sides, edges, surfaces and volumes.
Work the Replicator: replicate an unfamiliar 3D object. Challenge your understanding of transforming complex 2D shapes into 3D objects.
Spin and extrude all sorts of shapes in Shape Maker: Stacker: transform a circle into a doughnut? Transform 2D shapes to make a stack of 3D objects. For example, spin a circle around a lateral axis…
Shape sorter: modify tool: examine pairs of shapes, using a modifying tool. Use the tool to rotate, enlarge, reduce and flip a shape in each pair.
