The desire for harmony is universal among all cultures.

Taking drawing compasses in hand, we learn simple geometric methods for composing harmonious spaces and places, then observe them in world-famous works of art, architecture, interior, landscape and graphic designs by Andrea Palladio, Thomas Jefferson, Eero Saarinen, Beatrix Farrand, Louis Sullivan and others.

The Golden Mean as a Design Tool
WKS-5032 $45 + $50 materials/text fee
The appearance of the golden mean in nature, design, and architecture is universally recognized, from Egyptian pyramids and the Greek Parthenon to Le Corbusier’s Modulor, and from sunflowers to spiral shells from the sea. This three-hour workshop explores the golden mean principle in nature, the human body, and architectural and interior design. Practical studio workshops demonstrate how to draw the golden mean proportion and use it as a design tool. Suggested prerequisite: The Art and Practice of Geometric Proportion.
