Artist Statement:


    Proportion is always an important issue in architectural composition. In the past, architects have explored variants in proportion by making sketches and study models, but this is a slow and cumbersome process. Now it is possible to carry out these explorations very fluidly and rapidly by entering values for dimensioning variables at a graphics workstation. Here we see some variants on a colonnade, that were produced in this way.
