Relation between Math and Architecture

This is one of the most popular questions I get asked and today I am going to try to answer that question once and for all.  I can safely say that 99% of the entire Math I do on a daily basis involves the same things I learned when I was in my 5th or 6th class. In all fairness it is never about the complexity of the Math that’s the challenge, it’s coming up with the problem in the first place.

One’s ability in the subject of math should never be the factor that questions your profession as an Architect. You will have to deal with area, volume and other geometric relationships not to mention array of dimensions, quantities, spatial thinking and patterns, all this is possible if one is adept at math namely Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry.

Here at Sigma College of Architecture, one of the top Architectural colleges in South India we incorporate the basics of Mathematics into our curriculum.
