Mary's axe.


30 St Mary Axe, London, EC3A 8EP

Skyscraper.

London, England.

A commercial (Insurance centre) neo-futuristic skyscraper in London's primary financial district, the City of London. It was completed in December 2003 and opened in April 2004.

The building stands on the former sites of the Baltic Exchange (24-28 St Mary Axe), the headquarters of a global marketplace for ship sales and shipping information, and the Chamber of Shipping (30-32 St Mary Axe). On 10 April 1992 the Provisional IRA detonated a bomb close to the Exchange, causing extensive damage to the historic building and neighbouring structures.


Is this building a gherkin?



Everyone one in the world has agreed. Its nickname is Gherkin?

What does it look like to you?



Gherkins.

I always thought it looked like a giant dil--(ahem), lipstick.

With all due respect, why so cryptic? I know what you're saying here and it has great potential... But why so cryptic?

Hope you don't take offence from my innocent question.

But its going straight back to this.

Torus.

So please all watch the video and help me be less cryptic.




But if you still think its a gherkin?

Like I said, I know what you're getting at.

I guess that's just your style.

I respect your unique approach. See you around the boards.

You're trying to figure out the language of shapes, but you don't know which method, or approach, to use?

I think that, instead of going the same route as everyone else, using mathematics (geometry) to define shapes by their structuring, I would use what the shapes actually do, in order to define them. That is, I don't think that math is all that useful as it is really only good at measuring a shapes structure, or the shape of a shape - it measures the construction of its functions but it doesn't really tell you anything about it's function, or solution. e.g. 1 + 1 = 2 but what wtf is 2 for? Math doesn't show that. Or when using math to measure the trajectory of something, it can only reveal the trajectory, and not what the trajectory is for. i.e. Math seeks to answer the path or structure of an object’s trajectory, or what causes its path or trajectory, instead of answering what an objects trajectory is for. e.g. What does its revolution produce.

e.g. Cone shapes, as pictured in your OP, generally secrete seeds, or what is seen by it, into something else, and so the shape's most likely function is penetration, so as to penetrate and give sight to something else.

Good luck.

That is, I would use the "you will know them by their fruit" method.

Lol every time that shape appears that's what it's doing, isn't it? Mushrooms with spores, plants with pollen, men with sperm, brains (presynaptic neurons) with neurotransmitters...



See this shape:



too funny.
