Architecture Humor




I was studying for the ARE the other day and ran across this little gem as I touched up on my Corbusier knowledge. It comes to us via Cute Little Factory. For those not in the know, here's the background:
The guy pointing is Corbusier, a famous Swiss/French architect who practiced in the early half of the 20th century. One of his creations was his "Modulor" as an attempt to explore proportionality in the human body and how it could relate to architecture. Cal Poly SLO students will recognize this as the mural painted on the second floor of Building 221 from their days as 2nd years overlooking Dexter Lawn.
