Geometry in nature

Discover the fascinating world of geometry in nature and how it shapes the stunning landscapes around us. Explore top ideas that showcase the intricate patterns and symmetry found in the natural world.
I was curious, so I analyzed the geometry of the peacock's tail-feather display.  Turns out the shape is a symmetrical phyllotaxis, which is somewhat surprising.   Most phyllotaxis patterns in nature (like on pinecones, pineapples and sunflowers) have spirals of adjacent Fibonacci numbers (usually 5, 8, 13 or 21), but the peacock's feathers have the same count of spirals in both directions!

Geometry + Nature

Geometric forms are those which correspond to named regular shapes, such as squares, rectangles and circles. I like the fact that not all naturally occurring objects are organic and it is the precision and regularity of forms within the natural world which I find particularly inspiring. Below are just a few of many examples.

Symmetry is usually defined as a sense of "balanced proportions" or "the quality of having parts that match each other," especially in an attractive way. And, when you think about it, it is all around us. Whether we look at human beings, architecture, art, or biology, there’s nothing more fascinating than seeing how the world is full of perfect forms and harmony.
