Basic Dynamic Symmetry Armatures
Scroll down for construction steps for the basic dynamic symmetry.
In ascending order of aspect ratio:
Step 1: main diagonals and one reciprocal (perpendicular to the 'baroque' diagonal)
Step 2: main diagonals and all 4 reciprocals. Note the red x indicating a possible focal point.
Final Step: horizontals and verticals through the intersections of the diagonals and their reciprocals.

Whirling Squares Spiral:
We superimpose the whirling squares' spiral onto the Dynamic Symmetry Armatures for PHI* rectangles, as indicated in the following diagram:
*or near-PHI such as 10x16, 15x25, 5x8, 8x13
