Vision for Canton, Ohio 1985

Arthur Compton Marks, Architect

Marko's vision in 1977 of a city is given in his "Four 1985 Cities." In it he explains the pyramid as a form which allows for sunshine to reach all without casting shadow on the next form. You could never describe Marko as a mystic, but he was fascinated by the pyramid's mathematical surprises, its connection with the fibonacci sequence.

In the ACM logo (my interpretation of it, anyway) you can see the top triangle as the "A", the bottom two as the "M" and the circles defining the "C". It doesn't even look symmetrical, but you can turn it:
