Architectural training teaches the idea of using a parti, or concept, as a unifying guide. This paraphrased definition is from Wikipedia: “A Parti comes from the French Prendre parti, meaning to make a decision. Often referred to as the big idea, it is the chief organizing thought or decision behind an architect’s design that can be presented in the form of a basic diagram and/or a simple statement.” The parti becomes the organizing element against which all subsequent design decisions are measured.
The proportions of this website are based on the proportions of the Golden Rectangle, or 1:1.618. This is my parti for this website.
