Building Proportions and the Golden Ratio of Design - Improve Your Design

Building Proportions and the Golden Ratio of Design

About this course:

Improve your designs when you learn to "see the math" of the Golden Ratio. Have you ever looked at a home design and felt something was a little "off"? Your proportions may be incorrect. Learn to apply the Golden Ratio, Fibonacci numbers, and regulating lines to your designs and solve all of your proportion issues. Mathematicians around the world and all through history have studied this ratio. They've found that certain rules and ratios can account for aesthetically pleasing compositions in nature, art, and building design. You will learn to see the Golden Ratio everywhere as well as calculate it with formulas, number sequences, and display it graphically. This course is presented by www.ResidentialDesignAward.com winner Kevin Holdridge, CAPS, CGP, CPBD. Learn how to improve your home designs by starting the course now.
