Golden Spiral Outdoor Classroom - Public Sculptures

Featured In College of New Jersey, Ewing Township, NJ

Item details

Inspired by the Golden Ratio, this 28′ w landmark functional sculpture creates an outdoor classroom and a community gathering site. The sculpture is a focal point of the STEM complex, serving as an icon for the College and embodying the search for knowledge and insight via higher education. The pursuit of beauty, of underlying order, lies at the core of intellectual inquiry. Explored since ancient times, and made popular through work of Leonardo Fibonacci and Johannes Kepler in the Middle Ages, the Golden Ratio is visualized here as a logarithmic spiral.
