The symbolic meanings of the triangle include serving as an identifier, marker, and for transmitting information. In astrology, the triangle is regarded as a mysterious symbol for “civilization/culture”. In the work-kinetic energy theorem, it is applied to explain “encounter/relationship”. Originated from the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet Δ (Delta), the triangle also serves a unique purpose and meaning in the fields of mathematics, chemistry, physics, semiology, and others. In English, the word “delta” also means the alluvial deposit at the mouth of a river. In geometry, Δ is used to represent the triangular shape. Juxtaposing this rational geometric symbol with the organic architectural forms in the settlement, a giant triangle could be seen from different points, marking the location of the Treasure Hill, a historical cross-section facing the Xindian River.
