Gaddis Architect

Actually, the careful application of one of the historic standards of scale, like the Golden Section or Modular studied by all architecture students, will almost guarantee that a project is beautiful even if other elements are rather dreary.

Response from Joffre: Thank you for contributing to my page on scale. I am delighted that you visited. I do plan on dealing with the Golden Section, or Golden Ratio in my section on proportion, when I get there in the next few days. I am a little hesitant to plunge into that section because there is so much that can be said.

BTW, I really love your website I love the way you critique normal houses that need some serious design help. - Joffre. Its great. Keep up the good work.
