Types of Quadrilaterals

There are six basic types of quadrilaterals:
1.  Rectangle
Opposite sides of a rectangle are parallel and equal.  All angles are 90º.

2.  Square
Opposite sides of a square are parallel and all sides are equal.  All angles are 90º.

3.  Parallelogram
Opposite sides of a parallelogram are parallel and equal.  Opposite angles are equal.

4.  Rhombus
All sides of a rhombus are equal and opposite sides are parallel.  Opposite angles of a rhombus are equal.  The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.


5.  Trapezium
trapezium has one pair of opposite sides parallel.  A regular trapezium has non-parallel sides equal and its base angles are equal, as shown in the following diagram.

6.  Kite
Two pairs of adjacent sides of a kite are equal, and one pair of opposite angles are equal.   Diagonals intersect at right angles.  One diagonal is bisected by the other.

4.  Rhombus
All sides of a rhombus are equal and opposite sides are parallel.  Opposite angles of a rhombus are equal.  The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.


5.  Trapezium

Burj al Arab

It is use like an Hotel







197.5 m


321 m


60 floors (202 suites)


History and interesting things
On the hotel roof is a heliport, which was used as a tennis court for advertising involving Roger Federer and Andre Agassi, but that, despite what many believe, is not used as field tennis.
The interior decoration of the building was carried out by Chinese designer Khuan Chew. The instructions el Jeque of Dubai gave Chew for the design of the suites and atrium were hit and innovate. Khuan and his team used large quantities of marble, velvet and leaflets of ore for decorate. Six months before the inauguration, Sheikh visited the hotel to give his opinion. The majesty of the suites met his expectations of luxury and grandeur show, but seeing the painting of a minimalist atrium, failed. The decorator had to redesign the look of the lobby, adding bright colors on the roof, dancing fountains, a spectacle of colored lights and giant aquariums.
The Prices of the rooms varies between $ 2,500 and $ 40,000 per night. The design of the suites unites East and West. The bathrooms are with mosaics. The Royal Suite, is valued at $ 137,716 per night, is in the world ranking of the 15 most expensive hotel rooms, done by CNN Go in 2012.
The Burj Al Arab has nine restaurants, among them the Al Mahara -under the sea, offering an underwater view through a stained glass window as aquarium and Al Muntaha, located 200 meters high, and allowing a view of the city of Dubai.
The clients have the ability to request a Rolls Royce Silver Seraph for transport. The cars were imported from Britain. Clients can also request a helicopter that goes straight to the hotel located on the helipad

This building since I knew about it, I loved it. I like this entire beautiful hotel and the most incredible thing is that is on a small island on the beach. My favorite part of the hotel is that has some restaurants with gorgeous views. One of the restaurants is over the sea so you can see the sea wildlife. And another restaurant you can see a panoramic view of Dubai.

TECHNOSPHERE OF DUBAI by Sara Zapico Linares 3rd ESO C


The concept of this iconic building for the Techno sphere of Dubai, is a building which will reflect the state of Planet Earth in the current and future times. Planet Earth embodies the very essence of the ecosystem that we live in.

The Techno sphere has several key technology systems and architectural spaces that will 
enable the building to generate a self breathing environment as well as generate electricity 
from solar power to supplement the energy needs of the building.



The Aldar HQ building is located in Raha Beach, a new city on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi.
Its architectural style is called structural expressionism also known as High-Tech modernism.
This style is an advanced modernism in which buildings display their structural elements inside and out. Structures in this style tend to have a metallic appearance.
The Aldar HQ is the first circular skyscraper in the world. The construction was completed using a steel diagonal grid to sustain the circular shape and then covered with glass panels.
Marwan Zgheib decided to create a simple building that would possess the calm and ideal   beauty but also have expressive power.


He is an Architect an Interior Designer and a Technologist with a love for Design and Art. He runs his own design company James Law Cybertecture. He also is a Young Global Leader of World Economic Forum a founder of NGO Cybertecture for Humanity. On most of his free time e runs a Young Architect Program for kids. He is an occasional TED speaker and teach part time in universities in Hong Kong. Combining technology and architecture, Law has designed some of the most innovative projects in the world, including the world's first artificial intelligent media laboratory for the Hong Kong government. 
Born in Hong Kong and raised in the United Kingdom from the age of nine, Law began to discover his talents in architecture when he was just 7-years-old.
His passion for architecture eventually led him to study the discipline at the University College London, under renowned visionary architect Peter Cook. Upon graduation in 1992, Law took up his first job as an architect at the firm of prestigious Japanese architect Itsuko Hasegawa in Tokyo in 1994. 

Following this, Law moved back to Hong Kong in 1997 to take up a position as the Director of Gensler International, one of the largest design firms in the world, and to focus on technology projects.


In my personal opinion, this sphere is a huge and innovating idea because it is an eco-friendly building which helps to reduce the amount of pollution we create regularly, and show us that, if we were able to produce all buildings yhis way, we will conserve our world for longer
