From ratio to building measures

I 3 building scales into 3 orders of size

Every of the 3 building scales is linked to successive orders of size.

The court is 1.

Scale I = from wall to cella = from 1/49 to 1/7.

Scale II = from cella to court = from 1/7 to 1.

Scale III = from court to domain = from 1 to 7.

II Defining numerical values for the ratios

There are specific relations between the ratios of an order of size. These are used to define numerical values with the decimal system.

The schemes below follow Dom Hans van der Laan’s Architectonic Space chapter VII (VDL AS VII).
