Fractal geometry describeS the irregular shapes and it can occur in many different places in both Mathematics and elsewhere in Nature. The aim of this paper is to present an overview which involves fractal geometry and the properties of self-similarity in architectural and design projects. We will refer of the building's characteristics in different cultures (e.g., Oriental and Western culture) and in different periods (e.g. in the Middle Ages until today).
