Architects Craft Wood Siding Based on the Fibonacci Sequence

New, 1 comment

Math! We don't write about it all that often but we relish the opportunity to do so when it arises. Thanks to Berlin-based architects Sören Hanft, the Da Vinci Code lives on: the firm (along with architect Jens Casper) has just designed a house whose glazed larch-wood siding was inspired by the Fibonacci sequence. According to the project description, "The horizontal slats of different widths are based in their arrangement on the Fibonacci series of numbers,” creating "an anomaly that affects the design harmoniously." Please make like Robert Langdon and bolt over to Freshome for additional photos.
