The plastic number and golden section
The golden section: the Greek symbol phi, the golden section 0.618, played a vital role in the life of Dom Hans van der Laan. Not only is the golden section often found in art, but it also features in the lives of builders, stock market analysts and composers, as well as in nature: an aspen leaf, a starfish and man himself. It is even contained in our DNA. For this reason, many people consider the golden section to be the ultimate expression of universal beauty.
