Golden Section Construction (36 recycled packaging plywood golden section rectangles,wood glue,staples,77cm x 59cm x 50cm,Dirk Marwig 2013)
This post shows how I created the “divine Angle” of 137.5º going about it in my dyslexic way:
-This is just a model using 36 recycled (packaging plywood) golden section rectangles.(6 rectangles per ‘story'(6 ‘stories’) all connected at the “Golden Mean”, then stacked.
I hate to throw materials away without playing with them first. This construction can be made out of other materials, of course, and stacked infinitely if you cut the rectangles slightly smaller and smaller as it grows in hight. It would spiral upward perfectly close to the divine angle of 137.5 degrees! Maybe one day I’ll build the real thing. This could be a cool building!
