Concept Design for UBA BANK Mozambique: The Retail Experience
Our approach
THE GOLDEN SECTION:
This is a design ratio which creates aesthetically pleasing proportions, and was made most famous by Leonardo da Vinci’s VITRUVIAN MAN which illustrates the ratio in relation to a man’s body –
e.g. a palm is 4 fingers and a foot is 4 palms, etc.
This ratio, 6.14, is also found in nature – e.g. a nautilus shell grows and expands at this ratio.
The ratio has been used since ancient times to give buildings a “human” dimension, creating a space people are comfortable in.
