ТНЕ INFLUENCE OF GEOMETRY ON ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN SHAPING

the search of new opportunities and ways of shaping in architec­ture through studying geometrical f eatures of surfaces is shown in works of many architects because of architecture that of all the arts is most closely connected with geometry. Geometrical shaping of architectural constructions - is an important part of architectural design which allows architect to convey the meaning of idea, the composition of architectural space, the volume and spatial characteristics of object.
This article reveals the interconnection between volume and spatial forms of architectural constructions and urban planning with geometry; it also considers ge­ometry as а theoretical base for creation the architectural constructions and urban planning of settlements; it analyses the analogs of architectural constructions from the point of view of geometrical shaping.

Keywords: geometrical shaping, geometry in architecture, геометрическое формообразо­вание, геометрия в архитектуре
