Fibonacci on Grade

The students and I are creating an ascending Fibonacci ramped platform thing out of local dry laid stone at the Haliburton School of Art in the Haliburton Highlands in Ontario. Th first day after determining where it should go on site, and how it would be oriented on the slight grade, we pieced together the large chunks and connected a continuous spiral course of layered granite. We added gravel to create the beginning of the ramp. 

This structure is a loose adaption of a piece Eric Landman designed and built recently. 
He kindly gave permission to develop his design further which I plan to do in number of ways including adding dry stone arched niches into the mix. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow's edition of Thinking Spirally With My Hands.
