Google Earth Voyager Story: Triangular Structures
In this Google Earth story, we explore triangles by looking at different architectural sites where triangles are a prominent feature. In particular we look at the Bank of China in Hong Kong and then the Eiffel Tower. Each building is an application of the geometric principles behind triangles.
