English abstract:
Fractals are defined by their characteristics - self-similarity, generation by iterations, rough surfaces, infinite complexity, dependence on starting parameters and common features with nature. With regard to this definition, architecture and façades in particular can be described according to visual criteria whether they offer fractal characteristics or not, examining various levels of scale. Limits are imposed by certain influences that are inherent in buildings, ranging from materials used over purposes to specific sizes of certain details. So, often the only way to describe Fractals is through their Fractal Dimension.
