pick up a copy of
The Power of Limits - Proportional Harmonics in Nature, Art and Architecture
author is Gyorgy Doczi
1994 Shambhala, ISBN 0-87773-193-4 (pbk)
$27 US (online is 21.60)

The book very thoughtfully disects golden section & fibinacci impacts on a wide variety of architecture across 4 continents. Pictures, graphs, formula, dimensions and musical harmonic analysis. Doczi has all the math crunched out and makes it easy to understand because the presentation multifaceted. Covers a multitude of related analysis in nature and other artificial designs, including sculpture, aircraft and poetry forms. Fascinating and if you have an interest, it should be on your bookshelf.

The link listed is the online catalog description which does not do the book adequate justice.
