The Faisal Mosque in Pakistan has been listed amongst the top 50 most beautiful buildings in the world.
Moreover, Faisal Mosque has also been featured as the 16th most beautiful building in the world by Roofing Megastore.
The Roofing Megastore led a study and examined 100 most famous architectural works in the world and followed the ‘golden ratio’, as researchers say that according to this theory, Sir Christopher Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral in London is the most beautiful building in the world, because it adheres most closely to this formula, by an alignment of 72.28 per cent to be exact.
Moreover, Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore and Westminster Abbey in London are considered as the most beautiful building after St Paul’s Cathedral.
The Golden Ratio explains ‘the perfectly symmetrical relationship between two proportions’, and it has been used by various notable historical artists and architects including Michelangelo, to create pleasing compositions.
