Fractal facades

    Among many issues regarding connections between fractal geometry and architecture a signifi cant role is played by research on facades with fractal features. In their search for adequate examples scientists draw from the facades of historical structures, trying to fi nd self-similar elements, and from studying the facades of contemporary buildings, measuring their fractal dimension. Most examples seem to demonstrate their fractal features randomly and unintentionally. The paper presents a proposal of the use of fractal surface with strictly mathematical algorithms generated as an element developing the form of the facade considered to be a relief.
