Abstract
The Golden Ratio House is primarily an architectural object constructed from a cube, which is the necessary point of origin for this project.

Similar to the rules of invention, its purpose lies in its own making. Its rational construction, using the proportion of the golden ratio, produces an autonomous form.

The translations and transformations of the cube are dialectic. The resulting form of the House is a product of the logic necessary for its existence.
