One of the most important qualities of being an architect is creativity. While staying within the confines of safety regulations, you want to design buildings and spaces that are awe-inspiring. The only way to do this is through creative thinking. Architects must use a combination of the left and right sides of their brain to harness both their logical, mathematical thinking and their unique, originative thinking. If you love to draw, sketch, imagine and create, and you are also a whiz with numbers, then it is highly likely that architecture is the right career path for you.
The golden ratios applications stretch far and wide. It’s found in nature, incorporated into great artworks, and even used in marketing campaigns to influence our buying choices. It’s no surprise that architects also jump at the chance to subconsciously influence our opinions of their work. They use it to give buildings balance and height, create obscure shapes, and design beautiful layouts. Take a look at the buildings in your hometown. You’ll undoubtedly be able to pick out a few examples of your own. What are your thoughts on the use of the ratio in architecture? Do you think it really has an effect on our perceptions? Tell us in the comments.
To explain it simply, a golden rectangle signifies any shape that can be wholly divided into up into a square and a rectangle that, when combined, establish a ratio of 1:1.61. Since both the lengths and widths of these shapes correspond to the ration, the theory states that you should be able to continue dividing the resulting rectangles into smaller and smaller segments while still maintaining the ratio’s proportions. The inverse is also true. If an architect wants to make a structure larger or smaller to accommodate their clients’ needs, as long as they follow the principles laid out by the ratio, they have the ability to correctly alter a building’s proportions with just a few simple calculations.
