    Having an intercolumnation of 2 and quarter diameters this intercolumnation is considered by Vitruvius as the best proportion

    • A.

      Pycnostyle

    • B.

      Eustyle

    • C.

      Diastyle

    • D.

      Araeostyle

    Correct Answer
    B. Eustyle
    Explanation
    The intercolumnation of 2 and a quarter diameters, considered by Vitruvius as the best proportion, is known as eustyle. In classical architecture, the term "eustyle" describes a column arrangement where the intercolumniation is 2.25 times the diameter of the column. This spacing was believed to achieve a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing design, and it was one of several column arrangements identified by Vitruvius, including pycnostyle, diastyle, and araeostyle, each with different proportions.

    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
    The correct answer is 8 of diameter. Araeostyle intercolumnation refers to the spacing between columns in a structure, such as a building or a temple. In this case, the height of the intercolumnation should be 8 times the diameter of the column. This means that the distance between each column should be 8 times the diameter of the column itself.

    Explanation
    The preferred nosing for a staircase as dictated by BP344 is slanted nosing. This means that the edge of each step should be slanted or sloped, rather than protruding or having no nosing at all. Slanted nosing helps to prevent tripping and provides a safer and more comfortable walking surface on the stairs. This design is in accordance with the guidelines set by BP344, which likely prioritize safety and accessibility in stair construction.

    Correct Answer
    B. 1.8 m
    Explanation
    A mezzanine level should have a CCH (ceiling cavity height) of not less than 1.8 meters above and below it, if a ceiling cavity is provided for the floor below the mezzanine level. This means that there should be a minimum clearance of 1.8 meters between the mezzanine level and the ceiling above, as well as between the mezzanine level and the floor below. This clearance is necessary to ensure sufficient headroom and space for occupants on the mezzanine level, as well as to comply with safety regulations and building codes.
