These are a few of my favorite
Nexus Network Journal: Architecture and Mathematics Online
My favorite NNJ issue (as I was a guest co-editor):
Autumn 2008 Special Issue on Andrea Palladio
My second favorite NNJ issue (as I was the guest editor):
Winter 2002 Special Issue on the Golden Section
(Note, this issue takes a cautious and objective look at the role of the golden ratio in art and architecture.)
A great resource for Math/Art connections:
