      I'm glad of the positive feedbacks on my topic "THEORY OF PROPORTION": https://www.planetminecraft.com/blog/theory-of-proportion/
      for this reason I will soon add other parts to complete it.

      THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.4: The Corinthian and the Composite Order

      First I suggest you to check out the introduction in the part 3.1 of this topic: https://www.planetminecraft.com/member/archiga/wall/post/90588/

      Before starting I attach this image with the nomenclature of the main parts of the Ionic order as example. All the parts are in the same position in each order, the decors change: https://imgur.com/aAhXWqy



      I describe together the Corinthian and the Composite Order because of their same proportions. The differences are in the decorations.

      The Corinthian Order is the third of the Greek architecture, according to Vitruvius it was invented by the architect/sculptor Callimachus and its name derives from the Greek city of Corinth. Despite the Greek origin, this order was more used by Romans than in Greece, in fact we notice the utilization of the Corinth Order in the facade of the most important Roman temple: the Pantheon.
      The Composite Order was invented by the Romans and its capital shows the combination between the Ionic and the Corinthian Order. In addition to the capital, what differs from the Corinthian Order is the less complex entablature. The base and the shaft are the same.



      According to Vignola the height of the Corinthian/Composite column is obtained multiplying by 10 the diameter of the column. To get the dimensions of the other parts we give the value of 2 moduli (singular is modulo) to the diameter, so the height of the column is 20 moduli.

      In order to measure correctly the various parts of the order, Vignola used submultiples of the modulo. For the Corinthian/Composite Order 1 modulo = 18 parti (2 mod = 36 parti, 1/2 mod = 9 parti, 1 mod + 3 p = 21 p etc). I will use abbrevations mod (moduli) and p (parti).

      Of the 20 moduli for height of the column:
      2 mod 1/3 for the capital, 1 mod for the base, 16 mod 2/3 for the shaft.

      The height of the entablature is a quarter of the height of the column, then 5 mod (20 mod ÷ 4 = 5 mod = 90 p), and it is divided in the following parts:
      1,5 mod for the architrave, 1,5 mod for the frieze, 2 mod for the cornice.

      The intercolumniation (distance between two columns) must be 4 mod 2/3.

      THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.3: The Ionic Order

      First I suggest you to check out the introduction in the part 3.1 of this topic: https://www.planetminecraft.com/member/archiga/wall/post/90588/

      Before starting I attach this image with the nomenclature of the main parts of the Ionic order as example. All the parts are in the same position in each order, the decors change: https://imgur.com/aAhXWqy



      The Ionic Order is the second of the Greek architecture and represents the effect of the first Eastern influences absorbed by Greek culture, in fact its name derives from Asia Minor (called Ionia). This order symbolizes the female body, for this reason it was used in temples dedicated to the worship of goddesses, such as the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion (both in Athens)

      According to Vignola the height of the Ionic column is obtained multiplying by 9 the diameter of the column. To get the dimensions of the other parts we give the value of 2 moduli (singular is modulo) to the diameter, so the height of the column is 18 moduli.

      In order to measure correctly the various parts of the order, Vignola used submultiples of the modulo. For the Ionic Order 1 modulo = 18 parti (2 mod = 36 parti, 1/2 mod = 9 parti, 1 mod + 3 p = 21 p etc). I will use abbrevations mod (moduli) and p (parti).

      Of the 18 moduli for height of the column:
      2/3 mod (12 p) for the capital, 1 mod for the base, 16 mod 1/3 for the shaft.

      The height of the entablature is a quarter of the height of the column, then 4,5 mod (18 mod ÷ 4 = 4,5 mod = 81 p), and it is divided in the following parts:
      1 mod 1/4 for the architrave, 1,5 mod for the frieze, 1 mod 3/4 for the cornice.

      The intercolumniation (distance between two columns) must be 4,5 mod.

      Maybe later you could compress those posts into a blog post? Good read!

      THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.2: The Doric Order

      First I suggest you to check out the introduction in the part 3.1 of this topic: https://www.planetminecraft.com/member/archiga/wall/post/90588/

      Before starting I attach this image with the nomenclature of the main parts of the Ionic order as example. All the parts are in the same position in each order, the decors change: https://imgur.com/aAhXWqy



      The Doric Order is the most ancient of the Greek architecture, its name comes from the Dorians who lived in southern Greece.
      The Doric characterizes some of the most iconic ancient Greek buildings such as the Parthenon and the Temple of Zeus in Olympia. This Order also was used in the most of the temples in Magna Graecia (southern Italy)

      According to Vignola the height of the Doric column is obtained multiplying by 8 the diameter of the column. To get the dimensions of the other parts we give the value of 2 moduli (singular is modulo) to the diameter, so the height of the column is 16 moduli.

      In order to measure correctly the various parts of the order, Vignola used submultiples of the modulo. For the Doric Order 1 modulo = 12 parti (2 mod = 24 parti, 1/2 mod = 6 parti, 1 mod + 3 p = 15 p etc). I will use abbrevations mod (moduli) and p (parti).

      Of the 16 moduli for height of the column:
      1 mod for the capital, 1 mod for the base, 14 mod for the shaft.

      The height of the entablature is a quarter of the height of the column, then 4 mod (16 mod ÷ 4 = 4 mod = 48 p), and it is divided in the following parts:
      1 mod for the architrave, 1,5 mod for the frieze, 1,5 mod for the cornice.

      The intercolumniation (distance between two columns) must be 5,5 mod
