The World’s Largest Fractal Triangle

Play Youtube Video

In celebration of Pi Day (3.14), Albuquerque’s Fractal Foundation constructed the biggest Sierpinski Triangle Fractal in the world.

About 40 volunteers got together in the 505 to assemble 4,036 triangles made by children from around the world. They only needed 2,187 to make a seventh-order fractal triangle, which would be 96 feet per side. But there were so many submissions, they just kept building.

Next year, they’ll push it even further with an eighth-order fractal triangle, which is a whopping 196 feet per side and needs 6,561 triangles.

Teachers and parents can mail completed fractal triangles to:

Fractal Foundation, 2917 Campus Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106
