Proportions Study of Santa Maria Novella's facade by Leon Battista Alberti.
Dimensions in the facade by Alberti are tied together by number ratios. The facade can be inscribed in a square in total or divided into 3 squares.
The common measure used in the facade is 3.2 m (a). This number (a) is repeated throughout the facade in harmonic additions and divisions of 2. (a) is equal to the ∛ of the building’s overall height, 35.
b= ∛a c= b + 1/2 b d= ∛b e= a/10
