circle/square man in Villa Rotonda
...drawing--the circle/square man laying in the middle of the Villa Rotonda plan.
The proportions of both man and the Villa Rotonda coincide with a progression of circle/square junctures, and the point of this exercise was to find out whether Palladio based the proportions of the Villa Rotonda on the height of a man. According to the results, it appears that Palladio did not base the proportions of the Villa Rotonda on the height of a man.
Here man is 6.77' tall.
Here man is 4.78' tall.
