The Modulor - Measure and Proportion – The search for ideal dimensions and a universally applicable system of proportions occupied Le Corbusier (1887-1965) throughout his life. The culmination of this search is the development and application of the legendary Modulor, which combines the human scale with the golden section. Le Corbusier perfected the programmatic Modulor figure and its geometric derivation in countless versions. With the help of his series of measurements, he realized spectacular designs in typography, furniture design, urban planning and architecture - including the Zurich Pavilion, which is integrally proportioned with the Modulor.
