Abstract
This thesis combines the history of symmetry and proportion with a practical application of each to modern architecture. This application of knowledge and skills gained through research was introduced in the hope that an hypothesis might be proved. The hypothesis is that the systems of proportion and symmetry, which were used by the Ancients, primarily the Greeks, are still in use today. And in addition, it such as hypothesis is true, then are these systems much like those of the Greeks?
