Number LambdomaThree Dimensional Lambdoma.


The 3D Lambdoma is described by Hans Kayser. For this construction I used 1 inch square stock applied to an Index 16. The three types of proportions are clearly visible in this example: Arithmetic (left to right), Harmonic (bottom right to top) and Geometric (bottom center to top). The Lambdoma grows to infinity in two directions defining all proportions. It maintains a 1/1 diagonal beginning in the top left corner proceeding to the right and infinity. On one side of this diagonal all ratios are greater than 1 and on the other all proportions are less than 1.
