Graduate center at Harvard campus, Massachussetts - ‘the human scale’, Walter Gropius
Walter Gropius’ paper at the CIAM 8 congress on “The Human Scale”, prepares the further analysis of the present study, where the compositional arrangements of the public open urban environments coincide between the traditionality of solid forms and the loose experimentation of the ‘unsecured void’.  Here, the formal approach conserves the tradition of the rectilinear plaza, whereas the latter approach supports the modern interpretation of the detached and more flaccid urban void.
