Title: Elements of Architecture - Some Mathematical Principles of Architecture
Url: https://teachersinstitute.yale.edu/curriculum/guides/1983/1/83.01.12.x...
Creator: Ditallo, Fred
Publisher: Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute
Description: A unit on architecture, divided into the tangible and intangible aspects of architecture: space, light, proportion, and the emotional impact that a building has upon a person; and geometry and other mathematical concepts used in designing and constructing a building. There is a section on geometric construction, and one on geometric proofs; another section deals with proportion - the Golden Ratio in particular, and how the Golden Ratio can be obtained through the use of the Fibonacci Series.
