Abstract:

In this article Le Corbusier explains the basic mathematical principles of the Modular which appears on the cover of this issue of Gravesaner Blätter. The Modulor is based on two number sequences which relate to one another on the basis of the golden mean. Le Corbusier continues to demonstrate how this principle is applied in some of his architectural work.
