SIZE: SCALE AND PROPORTION

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:38pm
University of Belgrade - Faculty of Architecture
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 25, 2018

Scale and proportion in art and architecture are both concerned with size: while scale refers to the size of an object in relationship to another object, proportion refers to the relative size of parts of a whole. Throughout history of art, many artworks represent what was considered as an ideal based on the ancient classical Greek model and therefore serve as an illustration of both scale and proportion in art.

Here, we are interested in how scale and proportion function today in art and architecture, therefore we invite you to submit papers to bring scale and scaling into view. What ideals and/or ideology do they represent, how measurement scales are built and what are these, what are the relationships between materiality and size?
