Space is defined by the concept of scale and proportion of things that surround us, which are observed through a lens of a man. This requires seeing an object as an urban element of the architectural identity which, with its scale and proportion, constitutes a part of an urban context. The way a particular object influences the said context, and vice versa, and relation of some elements of the object to the scale and proportion concept is also taken into consideration.
In order for somebody to comprehend architecture and construction process, understanding the conceptual space, as well as the urban context is a good start since they can shed light on the issues of measure, scale and proportion. Scale, as a representative space, combines two forms of architecture – conceptual and physical. In architecturology, scale comes to the forefront, followed by proportion due to specification necessary to free the architectural space from an epistemological paradigm which serves as an obstacle for comprehending space through geometry.
Scale is a reference of the space itself while concept represents a part of an architect’s thought process. This is why an architectural project is a combination of physical and conceptual space. Moreover, scale can be seen as an underlying principle of transitioning from one space to the next, or establishing connection between measures of both spaces, whereas proportion stands for establishing connection between measures contained in a single space. Architecture, as seen from the standpoint of concept and the finished product, that is, the moment it becomes a physical entity, is characterized by a psychological component of emotion which is derived from the scale part of the concept – size. This is why every architect should consider all elements of an object during the architectural design process, as well as the object itself and how it will best fit an urban space.
