In this program we explore the properties of quadrilaterals. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we explore the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright as an application of squares and rectangles; in particular, we look at his Fallingwater house. In the second application we look at a unique parallelogram-shaped building in Spain, known as the Puerta de Europa. It provides an opportunity to explore the properties of parallelograms and trapezoids.

Stonehenge is best known as a circular structure. But it's the post and lintel construction used that is noteworthy, and this type of construction involves quadrilateral shapes. From the familiar door frames of houses to the majestic entryways of ancient temples, post and lintel construction provides a clear introduction to the nature of quadrilaterals. This segment also describes the key concepts developed throughout the program.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Falling Water is also a stunning assembly of quadrilateral shapes. Some of the rectangular forms in this building seem to defy gravity, as we explore the properties of squares and rectangles that allowed Frank Lloyd Wright to push the envelope of design and structure.

The Puerta de Europa towers in Madrid bring parallelograms front and center. These tilted towers, looking like modern-day towers of Pisa seem to defy gravity, but rely on the stability brought about by its quadrilateral structure. The underlying parallelogram and trapezoidal designs are explored and analyzed.
