-symmetry based on a simple geometrical modification, i.e. a site that couples to all lattice sites. We illustrate this mechanism by constructing the solution of the full quantum many-body problem of hardcore bosons on a wheel geometry, which are known to form Bose-Einstein condensates. The robustness of the condensate against interactions is shown numerically by adding nearest-neighbor interactions, which typically destroy Bose-Einstein condensates. We discuss further applications such as geometrically inducing finite-momentum condensates. Since our solution strategy is based on a generic mapping, our findings are applicable in a broader context, in which a particular state should be protected, by introducing an additional center site.
