    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Indicates a position in space

    • A.

      Point

    • B.

      Line

    • C.

      Volume

    • D.

      Space

    Correct Answer
    A. Point
    Explanation
    A point is a fundamental geometric object that indicates a specific position in space. It has no dimensions, only a location, and is represented by a dot. Unlike a line, volume, or space, which have length, width, and depth, a point is infinitesimally small and cannot be measured. Therefore, it accurately describes a position in space.

    Correct Answer
    A. Color
    Explanation
    Color is the correct answer because it is the phenomenon of light and visual perception that involves an individual's perception of hue, saturation, and tone value. Color allows us to distinguish a form from its environment by perceiving different wavelengths of light and interpreting them as different colors.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    By Le Corbusier comments on "forms", which of the composition that he mention is "very difficult" to satisfy the spirit?

    • A.

      Commutative composition

    • B.

      Cumulative composition

    • C.

      Subtractive Composition

    • D.

      Cubic Transformation

    Correct Answer
    D. Cubic Transformation
    Explanation
    Le Corbusier mentions that the "Cubic Transformation" is "very difficult" to satisfy the spirit. Although the explanation for this is not provided, it can be inferred that the complex and multidimensional nature of cubic transformations makes it challenging to create a composition that effectively captures the intended spirit or essence. Cubic transformations involve manipulating three-dimensional space, often resulting in intricate and abstract forms that may be harder to harmonize with the overall composition.

    "Vitruvius considers an intercolumnation of 2 and a quarter diameters to be the best proportion."

    • A.

      Pycnostyle

    • B.

      Eustyle

    • C.

      Diastyle

    • D.

      Araeostyle

    Correct Answer
    B. Eustyle
    Explanation
    Vitruvius, the ancient Roman architect, described different styles of intercolumnation (spacing between columns) in his writings. The "eustyle" intercolumnation, which has a spacing of 2 and a quarter column diameters, was considered by Vitruvius to be the ideal proportion for both aesthetic and structural reasons.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Araeostyle intercolumnation should have a height of

    • A.

      10 of diameter

    • B.

      9 of diameter

    • C.

      8 and a half of diameter

    • D.

      8 of diameter

    Correct Answer
    D. 8 of diameter
    Explanation
    Araeostyle intercolumnation should have a height of 8 of diameter because it is a classical architectural term that refers to the spacing between columns in a building. The term "of diameter" indicates that the height of the intercolumnation should be equal to 8 times the diameter of the columns. Therefore, the correct answer is 8 of diameter.
