Enlightenment and Application of Infinite Rapport Structure in Architectural Design


Article Preview

The infinite rapport structure is continuous repetition of a unit to fill its own space based on certain rhythm arranged. It has long been widely used in decoration of Architecture. This article makes a brief introduction of Geometrical Theory of Crystal Structure, studies the types and features of infinite rapport structure with different Dimension periodicity, and presents some typical design cases in architecture.
