Rectangular Disarray

A new favorite building, on the West side.  The strategic use and placement of non-congruent rectangles produces a pleasing result.


Math Photo: Tetradecagon


Playgrounds offer a seemingly endless supply of interesting mathematical apparatuses.  I was rewarded on this particular day, seeing a regular tetradecagon for the first time ever.
