In the years 1942 to 1948, Le Corbusier developed a system of measurements which became known as “Modulor”. Based on the Golden Section and Fibonacci numbers and also using the physical dimensions of the average human, “Modulor” is a sequence of measurements which Le Corbusier used to achieve harmony in his architectural compositions. Le Modulor was published in 1950 and after meeting with success, Le Corbusier went on to publish Modulor 2 in 1955. In many of Le Le Corbusier’s most notable buildings, including the Chapel at Ronchamp and the Unité d’habitation, evidence of his Modulor system can be seen. These two volumes form an important and integral part of Le Corbusier’s theoretical writings. A fundamental work in the history of architecture in a facsimile edition.
