changing x, y, and z scales - St. Pierre at Firminy-Vert
...the computer capability of changing x, y, and z scales independently of each other. This will purely be a series of examples to show a capability that designers never had before and perhaps there really is no reason for designers to ever use the capability, but I think the results, especially using 3-D models, will demonstrate something about scale. I just realized that what will actually be changing will be the buildings proportions. That suggests an even deeper analysis. In any case, I am going to start with St. Pierre and Dominican Motherhouse, and Hurva Synagogue, and maybe even West Pakistan Parliament and UNEP.
The plan of St. Pierre has been enlarged by a scale of 3.12 (to match the dimensions of the Palais des Congrès), while the height of St. Pierre has remained as is.
