Module Parts Diameter Minutes architectual measures?

By d8224b28 on 04 Feb 03:50 3 answers 0 comments

I was hoping someone can clarify for me. Based from my studies I knows This.

Classical Architecture Scale

60 minutes = 1 Diameter
12 Parts = 1 Module

Roman Architecture Scale

2 Module = 1 Diameter
18 Parts = 1 Module

so my question is in Classical scale how many Modules are in 1 Diameter? 1?

    Quite Interesting thanx for sharing but doesnt have answer I was looking. All structures in ancient world were based on human figure human proportions Even the Classical Temples. The most basic unit was the Diameter of the column at the bottom from that dimension are derived all other dimensions. I wasnt sure how the Modules are related to diameter in classical scale

    1 Diamter =60 Minutes
    1 Diamter/60 Minutes = 2 Modules
    1 Module = 30 Parts
