“Scale and Proportion”

Today we were continued the topic of Architectural Scale and Proportion from last Monday. We read the article, “Scale and Proportion.” It is interesting the article brings up the question: Does the vistor actually experience these proportions?

They do experience the proportion, not the exact measurements but the fundamental idea behind them. Therefore, it is necessary to think of the proportion with human beings and the building itself when we design our buildings besides consider the realistic measurements.

The understructure was not proportioned according to human measurement – that is in relation to the small apartments – but on a gigantic scale; a fitting substructure for a mammoth box. During the design, it helps us visualize the design by relating with our body. Sometimes, the number (measurement) might not be as affective as to the “scale and proportion.”
