What is the Golden Ratio?
The “Golden Ratio”, which is based on nature, has expressed the privilege of balance and aesthetics in the works of architecture, mathematics and art throughout the ages. The “Golden Ratio”, which also defines the ideal life and adds value to life by taking part in the basis of beauties, appears both in nature itself and in objects created by humans.
