The aesthetic is an enormously difficult factor to measure because of its subjectivity. It involves perceptions which everyone perceives the object differently. The golden ratio theory makes aesthetics becoming measurable aspect. In architecture, aesthetic visualization of a facade building is generally perceived subjectively. In old buildings, the theory of proportions was rigorously applied, but recently, this occurrence has degraded after the fabrication industry makes everything easier. This paper aims to measure recently constructed buildings still respect the rules of proportion. This research will be conducted by comparing the 3 colonial government buildings built in until the 1920s with 3 equivalent buildings built in the 21st century. An appraisal will be carried out through photos analysis based on the measurement of the golden ratio. The results showed that the theory of proportions with the calculation of the golden ratio, is still used by new buildings that use the Indo-European style concept, although its application is not as detailed as its calculations when compared to buildings built before the 1920s
