Le corbusier

“Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.”

Le Corbusier


Properties shapes

What does form mean?

  • refers to the shape or configuration of a building

  • Opposite: space  reciprocal relationship is essential (provide internal sheltered space for human occupation)

  • one of the primary elements of architecture.

  • the placement in relation to its immediate site and neighboring buildings

  • exterior space can be defined

  • considerations in order to analyze or design an architectural form: shape, mass / size, scale, proportion, rhythm, articulation, texture, color, and light.


Properties shapes

What is a shape?

  • configuration of surfaces and edges of a two- or three-dimensional object

  • perceived by contour or silhouette, rather than by detail.

  • Primary shapes, the circle, triangle, and square  generate volumes known as "platonic solids.”


Platonic solids

Platonic solids

Sphere & cylinder

Square forms

Cube


Non platonic forms

Non-platonic forms

  • Non-platonic forms Volumetric shapes contain both solids and voids, or exteriors and interiors.

  • Additive and subtractive process


Can you find shapes in buildings and structures
