Jay Harman – Designing the Next Golden Age

Naturalist, inventor and entrepreneur Jay Harman shows how nature’s favorite form, the spiral, is ubiquitous in nature: from the shape of galaxies to the flow of blood in our veins, how air moves through our lungs, and plants and flowers unfold. Movement wants to follow the path of least resistance. He shows how the spiral correlates with the fabled Golden Mean and the Fibonacci sequence, the mathematical representation of aesthetic beauty.

This speech took place at the 2004 National Bioneers Conference and is part of the Ecological Design Collection, Vol. 1.
