The Modulor is perhaps Le Corbusier’s bestknown invention. Developed out of models drawn from nature and art history, this last great proportioning system combines the human scale with the golden section. Starting in 1945, Le Corbusier based many of his spectacular designs in graphic art, architecture, and city planning on the Modulor, which ultimately came to symbolize his universality. This publication sheds light on his passionate pursuit of this line of inquiry, presenting models, references, and applications.
