Article THE HUMAN SCALE (JAN G L I. ARAUO) AND
UNHUMAN SCALE (Z. HADID - P. SCHUMACHER)
Authors D. Melodinsky, Moscow Institute of Architecture (State Academy), Moscow, Russia
Abstract The concept of "human scale" was widely spread over the scientific use according to the theory of architectural composition. It is used in order to get deeper vision on the scaleness as the main architectural category. Scalness as compositional category is complex structural feature. However, the concept of human scale as its more important part is ambiguously interpreted in the works of architectural theorists. This complicates the understanding of the notions of scale in General as an expressive tool in solving architectural imagery and prevents the advancement of architectural thought in this direction.

The article is dedicated to the clarifying of the human scale" concept based on a systemic understanding of the scale in architecture. The positions of a number of the leading theorists are enunciated by the article. It is shown a negative trend to neglect the large-scale relationships with a person, depriving the external form of its traditional ergonomic pointers which leads to the large-scale anonymity in contemporary architecture.
Keywords: architectural composition, architectural scale, human scale, parametric
