BBC reveals the truth about Golden Section

  • Comment

The fascinating truth of the Golden Section was once again made startlingly clear in the BBC programme The Human Face, presented by John Cleese (21.3.01).

Ghosts from Corb's Haunted House of Le Modulor (based on Golden Sections, of course) rattled their chains in delight as, eerily, the faces of Tom Cruise and Kate Moss were fitted into a mask of perfection based on that Gold number. Where or indeed when will it ever end for this slippery equation? The big question remains: will architects ever use Corb's Mod measurements now they know supermodels and film stars have the bone structure of the Unite and Ronchamp?
