Geometric Pyramids

Geometry

Love the pyramidal roof patterns here at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra. Notice how the column’s capital disappears into the pattern shape by following its order? Concealed lighting services? Structurally brilliant!

Amazing art pieces inside too. Worth a second visit.
