Architect Saturday, June 17th 2017.
Architects keep the golden ratio in mind when it comes time to decide how a building’s floor plan will flow. It’s used when determining features such as how to properly determine a buildings layout, space out windows, and determine where a door should be placed in a room. While these proportions are considered of secondary importance to the building’s structural integrity, adherence to the ratio increases chances that people will find the building aesthetically pleasing.
While there is some controversy over the exact origins, many people believe that use of the ratio dates all the way back to the Great Pyramids in Egypt. It can also be found in many of the world’s other most famous buildings including: the Parthenon, the Notre-Dame of Laon cathedral, and he Taj Mahal.
Architects have many demands and time constraints; therefore, it follows that an ambitious person with an innate urgency would make a great architect. It requires a mind that is like a machine; all the cogs are well-greased, grinding away day and night, working out every detail on the macro and micro levels.
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Ellipzes has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
