Sculptures

His vision was the “new” man living in functional architecture, thinking clearly and acting clearly in the modern age which would never again sink into the chaos of war.

Does a mystic, divine formula lie behind everything that is beautiful? For centuries the golden mean has been a subject of endless fascination. The ratio of the proportion can be seen in Nature; it runs through artistic design processes and it affects our perception of our surroundings. But how much of this apparent “world formula” is true, and how much of it is myth?
