Her research has mainly focused on the reciprocal influences between graphic mathematics and architecture. These relationships have always been expressed by the means of the drawing: the major and indispensable tool of the design process. The results of her studies were published and communicated in several international meetings and reviews. In June 2002 she presented “Architecture and Mathematics in Roman Amphitheaters” at the Nexus 2002 conference in Óbidos, Portugal. In addition to research and teaching, she maintains a private practice as an architect.

His notes, although confused and somewhat disordered, are very precious to us because they testify to work in progress and allow us to look directly into the mind of the scientist. While real treatises only show the solutions to problems and the certified rules, in Leonardo’s manuscripts we find numerous questions that sometimes reach a conclusion, sometimes not, giving us valuable information as regards the process of mathematical research in the Renaissance period, covering a wide range of approaches, from graphic and arithmetic, to geometric and analytical.

If the octagon is selected for a sacred space, and as that sacred space is traditionally oriented to the Cardinal Points, four additional directions (Vitruvius’s Eight Winds) could also be utilized.
