    The Human Body as a Building Architectural Colossi and their Metaphors

    The human reception of architecture is interpreted through the human body. The form of the human body has therefore been used as a model and metaphor for architecture since antiquity.

    The research will be based on the relation of human body and architectural structures; especially how the human body has been the inspiration for the exterior shape of several architectural human colossi and how it was used as a building itself.

    The basic research question that the researcher will attempt to answer and explore is: How is architectural meaning communicated through the metaphor and imitation of the human body?”
