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.
