Characteristics: Acute angles, curve dominated by upward sweep of the branch.
Functions: Weight-bearing, growth upward, photosynthesis.
Constraints: Weight, tissue available for building, exogenous constraints like heat and dryness.
Let's see what I can find in a human-built shape that resembles this...
The arches seem like a kind of inverted branch. Obviously there are differences as well as similarities...let's explore.
Characteristics: Symmetrical, "branches" downward-facing.
Functions: Weight-bearing, decoration, shelter
Constraints: Weight, design, cost, others?
I'm not a structural engineer or an architect. Maybe you know someone who is. What kinds of comparisons would they make between these two curves? Is it worth discussing further?
