How to Construct a Logarithmic Rosette (Without Even Knowing it)

Abstract.

Paul Calter explains what a logarithmic rosette is and gives some examples of their occurrence in pavements. Then he gives a simple construction method which is totally geometric and requires no calculation. He then proves that it gives a logarithmic rosette, with the exception that the spirals are made up of straight-line segments rather than curved ones.
