Summary
Marrakesh is a showcase of 12th-century Islamic art and architecture, featuring many examples of the intricate polygonal pattern called an arabesque. How did medieval artisans create this shape with such mathematical precision? This program explains compass and straightedge construction-the technique employed by the Islamic craftsmen of Marrakesh-as well as properties of regular polygons, composite figures, tessellations, and areas of polygons. The video also travels to Washington D.C. for a discussion of the Pentagon's unique shape, and to Kuala Lampur, where the Petronas Towers reveal polygonal designs when viewed from above.
