# Project II: Parametric Modules for a Reading Nook.

Studying the degree of Geometric (in) efficiencies to use as a module for my reading nook.

1. Circles are inefficient with many opening between the geometric forms. This geometry can only shares up to four points, where the circle’s tangent of each quadrant meets another circle. 2. Organic Forms are more free form but are a kind of one-trick-pony. “It is a mathematical truth, that there are only three geometrical figures with equal sides that can fit together on a flat surface without leaving gaps: equilateral triangles, squares and hexagons.” -Alan Lightman, Physicist and Author

3. Equilateral Triangles are efficient because they fit perfect within one another and share all three sides. 4. Squares are even more efficient because they fit perfect within one another and share all four sides. 5. Hexagons are the most efficient shape in nature. They fit perfect within one another and share all six sides. According to Marcus Terentius Varro’s Honeycomb Conjecture, Varro believed that a hexagon shape would have  “the smallest total perimeter.”

Hexagons require the least amount of material to create the most volumetric space. Revised Design based on new Geometry:
