First I suggest you to**THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.4: The Corinthian and the Composite Order****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**(2 mod = 36 parti, 1/2 mod = 9 parti, 1 mod + 3 p = 21 p etc). I will use abbrevations*parti***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**. - Frigate - RachGia city

First I suggest you to**THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.3: The Ionic Order****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**Ioni****c 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**(2 mod = 36 parti, 1/2 mod = 9 parti, 1 mod + 3 p = 21 p etc). I will use abbrevations*parti***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**.Feriach said 2018-09-03 03:38:48Maybe later you could compress those posts into a blog post? Good read! -
First I suggest you to**THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.2: The Doric Order****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**(2 mod = 24 parti, 1/2 mod = 6 parti, 1 mod + 3 p = 15 p etc). I will use abbrevations*parti***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** -
**THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 3.1: The Tuscan Order**in this post and in the following ones I will describe the proportions of the main parts for each order taking as reference the**Introduction:****treatise of Vignola**"*Regola delli cinque ordini d'architettura*", previously mentioned in the part 2 (which I advice you to take a look at if you are reading this topic for the first time): https://www.planetminecraft.com/member/archiga/wall/post/90380/.

Due to the fact that this topic is aimed to the MC Community, I will not dwell on small details and particulars beacuse it would be too complicated to be composed with blocks (unless you use a very big scale).

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**Tuscan Order**(from the Latin*tuscanĭcus,*that means Etruscan) was typical in the Etruscan architecture, then arrived in the Roman architecture.

Probably the Tuscan derives from the Greek**Doric Order**, which is very similar in his features. During the Italian Renaissance the Tuscan Order replaced the Doric in architecture, beacuse of its Italian origin.

According to Vignola the height of the Tuscan column is obtained**multiplying by 7**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**14 moduli**.

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

Of the 14 moduli for height of the column:**1 mod**for the capital,**1 mod**for the base,**12 mod**for the shaft.

The height of the**entablature**is a quarter of the height of the column, then**3,5 mod**(14 mod ÷ 4 = 3,5 mod = 42 p), and it is divided in the following parts:**1 mod**for the architrave,**1 mod + 2 p**for the frieze,**1 mod + 4 p**for the cornice.

The**intercolumniation**(distance between two columns) must be**4 mod 2/3**(56 p).

Continuing the topic started yesterday (https://www.planetminecraft.com/member/archiga/wall/post/90172/) in this post I will introduce in a general way the proportions of the classical and classicist orders.**THEORY OF PROPORTION - part 2: The Five Orders [Columns]**

The four basic orders are: the, the**Doric**and the*Ionic*(from Greece); the**Corinthian**(from Italy). The fifth order, the**Tuscan**(of Roman invention) was added for the first time during the Renaissance in the teatrises of architecture based on**Composite***Vitruvius' De Architectura.*It is good to differentiate the rules of proportion according to the**Classical Codex**and the**Classicist Rule**.**CLASSICAL CODEX:**greater flexibility in the proportions, the orders respond to a language that attributes to each of them different features.

**- Tuscan:**bald and solid

**- Doric**: severe and robust (symbolize the male body)

**- Ionic:**elegant (symbolize the female body)

**- Corinthian:**refined and pure

**- Composite:**sumptuous and regal**CLASSICIST RULE:**each order responds to standard and not flexible proportions.

These ratios were theorized during the Renaissance from teatrises written by architects, the most influent was "**Regola delli cinque ordini d'architettura**(*Canon of the five orders of architecture)"*by the Italian architect**Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola**, to which the successive architects refer.

Here is a table with the proportions between the diameter of the column (considered**1 unit**) and the height of the column for each order (capital and base included)

It is clear that, assuming all orders of the same height,**the diameter decreases**from the Tuscan to the Corinthian-Composite.**1)**Tuscan,**2)**Doric,**3)**Ionic,**4)**Corinthian,**5)**Composite
