The Golden Spiral
CONSTRUCTION OF THE GOLDEN SPIRAL
The Golden Spiral is based on a series of squares that can be constructed within the golden rectangle
In geometry it is a particular type of logarithmic spiral with growth factor b equal to φ, the golden section.
To start the construction draw an arc from one corner of the rectangle until it intersects the adjacent side. You then lead a segment perpendicular to the side that was intersected, from the intersection point to the opposite side.
Repeat the process to form another square ...
.. and so on.
By drawing arcs with sequences of squares, one can construct the logarithmic spiral known as the Golden Spiral
The construction created can be related to the Fibonacci numbers using the construction shown on the side.
