Measuring compounds analysis of the baroque garden compositions in France (on the selected examples)
Summary.

The results of the geometrical analyses of gardens provide valuable information about trends and how the gardens and landscapes were created in 17th century. Early theoretical garden designs created by A. Mollet were quite simple and their composition was transparent – usually based on a main axis which also constituted the axis of symmetry. However, A. J. Dézallier d’Argenville also applied the simple division of space (as Mollet), but in much more expanded form, shapes and selection of spatial elements. Dézallier set trends in the 17th century design, especially for smaller elements of the garden. His proposals of garden designs were the model for other artists. Projects of A. Le Nôtre presented the highest degree of excellence in design solutions. The numerous measuring compounds based on simple divisions of space applied by Mollet (1651) also as Dézallier d’Argenville (1731) created a perfect geometric grid of dependences. Garden design modules were modified in the proportions of 1 : 2, 1 : 3 (in Mollet’s projects), 1 : 2, 1 : 3, 1 : 2.5 (in Dézallier d’Argenville’s projects) and also in the proportions of 1 : 2, 1 : 3, 1 : 5, 1 : 2.5 in some projects of Le Nôtre.

Key words: the geometrical analysis, measuring compounds, module of the garden construction
