The plans for Cal Poly's Engineering Plaza. "As a guiding element, we selected the Fibonacci series spiral, or golden mean, as the representation of engineering knowledge," states Jeff Gordon Smith, an alum, and the chief designer of project.

The College of Engineering at the California Polytechnic State University have plans for a new Engineering Plaza based on the Fibonacci numbers

Handmade Golden Section Gauge 48 by HardwareHomeware on Etsy, $55.96

Divine proportion/Golden ratio gauge --by Artist/Designer Riley Walker (coming to Etsy soon!

Untitled’ A 1.2m square panel based upon the grids drawn in preparation to create spirals. Instead of continuing to create the spirals, I have emphasised the grids themselves and played upon their design. The shading is created by different angles being applied to the drilling which gives the 3 dimensional effect

Phi-based geometric shapes can be used to create some interesting phi mandalas, embodying the phi proportion found throughout creation and iterating into the infinitely large and the infinitely small, much as the universe itself.

Geometry III (section). Although not so obvious as a spiral, this intricate geometry piece is designed using Fibonacci numbers. The foundations of the design are concentric circles drawn on the board radiating out from the centre. The radius of the circles follow the sequence 1,1,2,3,5,8 etc. Drillworks.	The work of Drew Whitemore.

In famous historical structures, such as the National Gallery in London, the use of the Golden Section gives rise to buildings that are both stable and aesthetically pleasing.

Parthenon. Athens Greece. 438 BC. Dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. Intentionally designed with using the golden section, curved lines and columns slightly slanted for aesthetics. Many scholars call the Parthenon the most perfectly portioned building.
