Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Mamun Residence by Shatotto

The heavy south west wind from the bay and round the year scorchy sun are two major considerations for the design.

Benjamin Garcia Saxe: “My mom and I never had a place we could call home… I never stopped dreaming of a place where she could find happiness… She has told me that that watching the moon reminds her of me… At night the cone-like surface of her new home opens to the moon and reminds her that it is me who is holding it in space as she goes calmly to sleep.” more here.   <3

Windowless, as solid concrete helps stabilize in­terior temperatures, which is important for maintaining the machinery that runs around the clock in the underground plant.

Escola Secundária Garcia Da Orta por Bak Gordo em Boavista, Porto, Portugal 

(via thecroquis)


The Collège Protestant Français de Jeunes Filles in Beirut by Michel Écochard in 1961. The architect introduced many philosophies of Le Corbusier and modernism to the Middle East through this and other similar public projects. The design plays with light and shadows as well as the purity of white and simple lines. It allows for an optimistic space of learning and creativity unseen in French schools before this era.
