A version of this board should be in every classroom in America. We need to celebrate mistakes for a necessary part of learning anything new. Also, this is essentially the process known as Design Thinking. A reminder that Design is so much more than making things pretty.

#### Sacred geometry

#### Golden ration - You can thank Benoit Mandelbrot for introducing us to the concept of fractals in 1975. You can thank God for creating it in the first place.

#### The over-lapsed golden spirals form the construct base for plant growth of leaves and fruits. This example shows the patterns in cauliflower.

#### Fibonacci in Nature - The Gartley pattern was outlined by H.M. Gartley in his book Profits in the Stock Market, published in 1935. Although the pattern is named “The Gartley,” the book did not discuss specific Fibonacci retracements!

#### Golden ratio - You can thank Benoit Mandelbrot for introducing us to fractals in 1975.

#### 6 fascinating appearances of the Fibonacci numbers in nature: not all vegetables are connected to the Fibonacci numbers, but those that are, are quite fascinating. Let’s take, for example, Romanesque broccoli (Roman cauliflower), one of the most beautiful vegetables I’ve ever seen! The peaked florets are arranged in beautiful Fibonacci spirals, 8 and 13 in this case.

Milan Cathedral was chosen to represent the architectural object for several obvious reasons: As a recognizable Gothic building, it exemplifies the use of mathematics in both the tectonics and the proportions of Gothic architecture and architecture in general. The Cathedral was analyzed by the Milanese Architect and Geometer Cesare Cesariano in the early 16th Century — “apparently the first precisely measured illustrations of Gothic architecture in a printed book”.

Eye Catching Photographs The “Golden Ratio” is naturally and aesthetically pleasing proportion which is popular in design and architecture amongst other fields. The golden ratio works wonders in drawing the human eye into the composition.

Leonardo’s Vetruvian Man is the most famous sketch ever made. The man in the circle is Vitruvius, the 1st century architect, who wrote that the best architecture is modelled on nature. The surrounding notes are taken from his revolutionary book De Architectura. Leonardo places two men in a circle and a square, exploring the ideal proportions of the human figure in relation to the geometrical principles described by Vitruvius.

#### Leonardo da Vinci - sketch: Vitruvius was a first century architect and author who proposed buildings be based on a natural scale. Leonardo's Vitruvius stands inside a circle and a square to show the relationship between an ideal human body and geometry. Leonardo's surrounding notes were taken from the book Vitruvius wrote.

Pratt student Melanie Hoff connected cables carrying 15,000 volts of electricity to a large plank of wood and then documented the results. Surprisingly the areas around each contact point don’t simply catch on fire or burn in a circle, but rather traverse outward in a fractal-like pattern, like lighting in slow motion.

Sacred geometry involves sacred universal patterns used in the design of everything in our reality, most often seen in sacred architecture and sacred art. The basic belief is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, cosmology. This value system is seen as widespread even in prehistory, a cultural universal of the human condition.
