different light, that is, with as much of an emphasis on methodology as on the particular results. These geometric approaches illustrate the usefulness of a rigorous mathematical approach to the study of architecture. A different kind of approach is offered by the examination of contemporary architecture through linear algebra.

Other contributions consider the symbolic value of perspective in painted representations of architecture, proportions in the architecture of Palladio and Wright, the issue of shape in the architecture of Le Corbusier.
