St. Louis Arch.

EDIT: Actually, I'm not even sure if it's a parabola, but it looks like one.

I searched for others and couldn't find one.

But seriously... the St. Louis Arch. Gateway to the west, I think it is. The suspension cables from the Golden Gate bridge might work, too.

Parabolas in the San Fransisco bridge.

Nope. It's more of a semicircle. I mean, if you consider it a 'U-shaped' building that's ok, but it's not a parabola.

The arches in the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, by Antoni Gaudì, are catenaries (very similar to parabolas) if that's useful.
Also, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis is a catenary, not a parabola.
Gothic arcs are also similar to parabolas (but they're not parabolas).

Suspension bridges in Ponte Hercilio Luz, Florianópolis, Brazil follow a parabolic, not catenary, curve. I win. (also search for 'catenary' on wikipedia)

Dome's in classical architecture were parabolic i think (eg, the dome of the Pantheon in Rome) but most arches (including Arc de Triomphe and the arches in roman bridges and aqueducts) are not. Never checked it, but to casual observation the O2 arena/millenium dome appears to be parabolic. There are some famous radio telescopes with parabolic dishes (Acerbo and the large dish at Jodrell Bank amongst others). The arches used to build the vaulted ceilings at St Peter's are (i think) parabolic.

It's more of a parabola than a semi-circle.

That's what she said.

Sorry, it called to me, even if it doesn't make sense.


to TS: Um, I think the Clyde Arc?

Google tells me so.
