Like Pi, the Golden Mean is a mathematic term but more expressive because this ratio produces a proportional “harmony”. This harmony results in the relationship between the lines and the dimensions created by this formula. Mathematicians will appreciate the ratio is 0.618 to 1.0. The Logo for the Clayton Center is one of the visual representations of this ratio or relationship which uses lines and arcs in certain relationships to each other.
In art, this harmonic effect is called eurythmy and is found in nature. Artists have found that dimensions determined by this formula are pleasing and aesthetically appealing as, hopefully, the events, the visual arts and the facility itself will be.
