It is hoped that this project will teach you to appreciate a number of things: the artistry of our ancestors, as well as their sacrifice and hard work; the richness of our cultural traditions; the important place of geometry in the world around us; and the connections between branches of knowledge, in particular between mathematics and architecture and other forms of art.

In addition, the project will expose you to the practice of several professions—that of the historian, anthropologist, architect, mathematician, and multimedia designer.

In playing your respective roles and working together to come up with a comprehensive, accurate and creative presentation, you should learn the value of thorough and insightful library and field research, team work, and patience in drafting and revising work towards the achievement of high standards. These are all skills that will serve you well not only in your student life but also in your chosen careers.
