title Mathematizing Niemeyer’s architecture through parametric modeling: evaluating the parables of the Pampulha Church
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, Săo Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 294-299
summary This paper describes the mathematization process behind the parables of the Pampulha Church, one of the most iconic buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer, in order to check how applicable was the use of analytic geometry in his architecture. To reach this, we factored the second degree equations presented on the building based on the parable height and width, then using parametric modeling to translate the formula into shape. As a result, the study intended to demonstrate how equations can be integrated into architecture, identifying how conic curves are being applied to the architectural geometry.
