Our house also tells a secret story about the history of forecasting. The panels on the facade are arranged according to the Fibonacci principle.

The 13th century mathematician »Leonardo da Pisa«, better known as Fibonacci, was known for the sequence of numbers whereby every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc…) and it is one of the basic tenants of mathematical forecasting. The »golden ratio« works on this principle, and fibonacci sequences appear in many biological settings such as the spiral forms of the snail or the head of a sunflower.
