“Le Corbusier developed the Modulor in the long tradition of Vitruvius, Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, and other attempts to discover mathematical proportions in the human body and then to use that knowledge to improve both the appearance and function of architecture.”  — Ostwald, Michael. 2001. The Modulor by Le Corbusier

I would add that using that knowledge will improve the appearance, function and presence of architecture. — AA
