# Interpret Scale Drawings

Villa Savoye is a house designed by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier. It was built between 1928 and 1931 and is considered a prime example of modern architecture and the International Style.

Look at the photo and the floor plans of the house.

- If the columns are 4.75 m apart, what are the length and width of the house?
- What is the area of the living room (the gridded area in the middle drawing of the second floor)?

## Hint:

- What is the scale expressed as a ratio?
- What are you solving for?
- How can you set up the equation?
- How can you estimate area?
