As proportion of harmony for our buildings we want to refer to the ancient concept ofGolden Ratio also known as the divine proportion or sectio divina. An irrational number, approximately that possesses many interesting properties.

The ancient Pythagoreans, who defined numbers as expressions of ratios (and not as units as is common today), believed that reality is numerical and that the golden ratio expressed an underlying truth about existence.
