These are the architectures and beings of nature that have become my favorite Golden Ratios.
Golden Ratio in Architecture:
The Parthenon in Greece follow the golden ratio in different parts of its structure. The entire front face of the Parthenon closely resembles the golden rectangle. Also, the structural beam on top of the supporting poles are proportional to each other, in golden ratio.
2) Notre Dame
Notre Dame in Paris, which was built in between 1163 and 1250 appears to have golden ratio proportions in a number of its key proportions of design. Although it is inaccurate to measure by a photographic source, it is possible to notice the golden ration implanted into the structure in various places.
3)Toronto’s CN Tower
The Toronto’s CN Tower, although modern, contains the golden ratio in its design. the ratio of observation deck at 342 meters to the total height of 553.33 is 0.618 or phi, the reciprocal of phi.
Golden Ratio in nature
