hand grid: an exploration of science and design by katie ahlquist

The measurements derived from Le Corbusier's exercise were found to fit into the Fibonacci series,
in which each number in the series is the sum of the two previous numbers (1,1,2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34...)
So it was found that the human figure's proportions fit into a system based on the rule of the golden section or Fibonacci series, and the resulting grid could be used to form an infinite number of harmonious compositional relationships.
