The Octagon: The most intelligent solution

Instead of building a curved wall, an octagonal shape can be used.

Advantages
  1. If combined with top arched windows (Spanish or Morisco style), the building will still seem round and therefore the architectural design will have been achieved.
  2. The cost increase is not so high if built with angle blocks.
Disadvantages
  1. It is not completely round!
