This paper views proportion as a tool used by planners and architects to achieve a certain quality of space. Considering that proportin is used to observe the correlations between the whole and its parts, the paper examines the aspects of space from the spatial plan of a city to the architectural details. Also, despite the fact that proportion is the correlation of the dimensions of physical elements in space, the paper also perceives proportion through the correlation of the material and immaterial aspects of space. In this way, the focus is shifted onto the level of communication between the architectural - urban space and its user. that is orchestration through the perception and experience of space, rather than the outdated, proportional analysis of architectural form.
