About Le Modulor
In 1945 the Swiss-born architect Le Corbusier presented his finalized study of human proportions as an attempt to create a new set of standardized system of measurement based upon the dimensions of the human body. Undoubtedly, Le Corbusier’s Le Modulor figure belong to a tradition of exploring the mathematical relationships of the body, including the studies of the Renaissance polymath Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. As an architect, ultimately Le Corbusier’s purpose was to create a standardize measurement based upon human proportionality in order to implement it in architecture and thus grant structures a greater stability. Le Corbusier’s use the human body as the foundation of measurements in architecture remains to be one of the most controversial approaches of the discipline, yet it is still continued to be used by engineers and architects today.
