ArchiTheory: Principles of Composition

When children learn art, it is like learning to read and write the language of vision. When they develop a style of expressing visual ideas, it helps them become visual poets. Looking for the visual effects of design principles does not have to limit an artist’s options. It can focus an artist’s experimentation and choice making.

Basic Principles of Composition of Space (2)

This is the same with ARCHITECTURE.


We think of the elements as the basic visual material with which to make architecture. Is hard to imagine any building without the use of one or more of these elements.

We think of the principles as ways to work with and arrange the elements.


A. Proportion

B. Emphasis

C. Movement

D. Pattern

E. Balance

F. Variety



I. Unity

Basic Design Principles applied to the visual elements is like “visual grammar.”
