Discussion about the many aspects of symmetry in design, and in the natural world.

Late 20th and 21st century architecture has seen more and more examples of buildings where the design, particularly main elevations, is no longer dominated by symmetry, or even regular distribution of features such as windows and doors.
An extreme example is the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, designed by Frank Gehry.

A more ordinary example is a school in Bath, with apparent random openings, both in size and placement.

And a modern house.
