THE GOLDEN RATIO
The golden ratio is a pattern of order used by nature. We can see this pattern in the growth of the branches of trees, the seeds of sunflowers, and the leaves of plants, just to name a few examples. Thanks to this pattern, branches, leaves, and seeds receive the same amount of sun exposure and rainwater, since they do not block each other out. The golden ratio is also present in the structure of DNA, the bones of the finger, the proportion between the bones of the arm, forearm and hand, and the inner ear and outer ear, just to name a few, although science has not yet discovered the exact efficiency of the proportion in the human body.
Mathematicians such as Pythagoras, Euclid, Luca Pacioli and Leonardo of Pisa (Fibonacci); artists such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dürer, Cézanne, Mondrian and Dalí; and architects such as Gaudí, Le Corbusier, etc. have utilized and revealed the uniqueness of the golden ratio as an expression of beauty, harmony and efficiency.
