Le Modulor

[]Le Corbusier's []le modulor is the best known of twentieth-century proportional schemes. It is based on the golden section, as that form had been proved attractive at the time []Corbusier was developing the system. []Corbusier created an "ideal" man to whom proportions were be fit, and who fit the proportions of the golden section.

[]Le Modulor has no set scale of application, but []Corbusier provided an architect's scale which could be used for generating designs based on the system. Extending the proportions up or down from this scale was not prohibited.
