Design with proportion (Fibonacci series / golden section)
From left to right: The Vitruvian painting; The Parthenon in Rome; The Water Centre in Cagliary; and the Sydney Opera House in Sydney. The three buildings were designed using the golden section.
Buildings that are designed with proportion in the drawing board and construct following such plan will produce aesthetic result since it follows the proportion of a human being, displayed in the original plan of Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian
Design with harmony with natural landscape
Design that considers landscaping thoughtfully follows the principle that architecture (a man-made building) should be in a perfect harmony with the natural landscape (a divine-creation) with the philosophy of the Yin and the Yang. The Jean Marie Tjibao Museum was designed considering the surrounding landscape that creates a pleasant view from all angles. Inspiration of the Tjibao Museum was taken by the native kayak hut. The New California Academy of Science was designed also considering the landscape not only of its surrounding area but also the hilly landscape of San Francisco. Both buildings were the master-pieces of Renzo Piano who has mastered the art of shaping the natural landscape with the beauty of architecture craftsmanship and new innovation.
