Architecture has quite an important place in the history of mathematics and art, not least because of the record it leaves, but also because many of the early theorists on the subject wrote about both visual arts and about architecture. There are however many buildings and architects who could deserve a mention, so separate lists, or even a separate template (with inevitable overlap with the present one) are possible.

Knotting link[edit]

This template currently has a link to the Knot article, which has little on the topic. It would be better to link to specific articles such as Celtic knot, Croatian interlace, Interlace (art), etc. AnonMoos (talk) 11:38, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Good idea, added those. Feel free to extend if need be (within reason). Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:35, 29 January 2019 (UTC)


Maybe better without the large image for needed horizontal template space? If an image is needed why not Da Vinci's image of the human body or an artwork which would connect better historically and vertically. [EDIT: removed much of my objection, looked into it more and agree that it's a very nice artwork to represent the topic for the template] A nice template and good work. I'll move on to less math-y things. Randy Kryn (talk) 19:45, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

I've cropped the image. Chiswick Chap (talk) 15:16, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
