A New Look at the Architectural Scale Figure

Architects often put people in their drawings to convey the sense of scale of their design The typical scale figure is a 6’-0” man, which doesn’t seem very typical to me as a woman just over 5’-1” in height. So, my compromise is to use Ziti the Noodle Dog as the HDC scale figure. You can also click here for the HDC holiday greeting using the drawing of Ziti at the Gardner House.
