Primitive Shapes

Primitive Shapes in architecture refer to simple, basic geometric forms used as building blocks for architectural design. These shapes, such as circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, and polygonal shapes, are the foundation of all architectural forms and serve as a visual language for architects and designers. The use of primitive shapes allows for the creation of strong, straightforward compositions and can help to emphasize the functional aspects of a building. These shapes are often used in combination with more complex forms to create a visual hierarchy and balance in architectural design.
