St Edmundsbury Cathedral
St Edmundsbury Cathedral is the cathedral for the Church of England's Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.
The fan-vaulted ceiling, made of oak, gilded and painted in blue, green and red, weighs about 6 tonnes and was hoisted in large, rib structure components 45 metres from the crossing floor. When hoisted and in its final position under the tower roof, craftsmen climbed up onto scaffolding to fix moulded frames and panels into the rib structure to make the finishing touches.

A golden rectangle
is a rectangle whose side lengths are in the golden ratio,
one-to-phi, that is, approximately 1:1.618. A distinctive
feature of this shape is that when a square section is
removed, the remainder is another golden rectangle, that is,
with the same proportions as the first. Square removal can
be repeated infinitely, which leads to an approximation of
the golden or Fibonacci spiral.
