All snarks about $24M mansions being funded by calculus textbook sales aside, there is an emerging relationship between calculus and architecture that is really fascinating.

I ran across this a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been wondering about it ever since. The point about using calculus to change architecture from a “discrete” notion into a “continuous” notion is particularly interesting.
