Not long ago I published the post WHO CREATED SYMMETRY?
I expressed there several original thoughts about symmetry.
One of them: “As a rule beauty is not symmetrical.”
Another: “… symmetry … shows limits of human imagination.”
Please read more in this old post and then take a look at the picture below.
What’s your opinion?
beautiful in the way a beehive is beautiful
A human body is not symmetrical but artists and sculptors love ‘the human form’ because its structure is beautiful. A face is definitely not symmetrical but is beautiful – particularly in its ability to express emotions.
Millie, you confirm my thought that “as a rule beauty is not symmetrical”. Nature is extremely beautiful but there is little symmetry in it.
Nature is certainly very beautiful and inspires me every single day, JF. 🙂
Not beautiful. Could be enhanced if the various porches had plants, etc. to create individuality. –Curt
Exactly what I mean. It is not beautiful because it is symmetrical. Too boring! Enhancements can break symmetry and make it attractive.
I think the symmetry here is quite pleasing and beautiful. I love geometric forms. So, as art this building is beautiful. As a home, it wants for individuality.
Sorry, I disagree with you. I find this symmetry too boring, without soul. It does not please or attract me.
