Location: Paris France. Date: 1857 to 1874. Construction system: masonry, cut stone. Shapes and forms of geometry used: uses circles rectangles and triangles in this building. If it wasnt for geometry buildings wouldnt exist buildings use shapes to make them sturdy.
Built in 1878 It was built in Monte Carlo which is a town in South East France it is a famous gambling resort
This building was built in Paris it uses circles and parallel lines.
As you can see Garnier uses a lot of stuff that has to do with geometry like of instance he uses lots of parallel lines and many different shapes like triangles, squares, rectangles and circles. Geometry is also used in all architectural buildings because you have to use different equations that are used in geometry to see how big to make the different shapes I would like to meet this architect because I like the way he designed the buildings and the way the buildings look
Jean Louis Charles Garnier, 1825-98, French architect, studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and won the Grand Prix de Rome (1848). He was awarded the commission for the Opera in Paris (1861-75), which is his principal work. It provided an impressive focus for the new boulevards of G. E. Haussmann's city planning. It is an ornate interpretation of Renaissance architecture, especially noted for the grand staircase. Garnier also built the casino at Monte Carlo. http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1E1- GarnierJ.html
