An approximation of a 3D golden spiral using polyhedra

  • Pieter van Staalduinen Mount Royal University
  • Pamini Thangarajah* Mount Royal University


In this presentation, we explore the benefits (cultural, scientific, mathematical, artistic) and drawbacks of creating a 3D Golden spiral. Throughout the prototyping process, we will detail the thought process behind decisions, and show the first complete prototype. We will also explain what our plans are for further iterations, how they might impact the larger community, and how they might benefit the understandings of science and mathematics of those doing the construction.
