In his investigation, Le Corbusier renews this fact maintaining the precise orthogonality of the right angle and modulation as a means to achieve his mathematical ‘vérités réconfortantes’. In recent years parametric modelling allows us to combine a great number of parameters, conducting us to explore and discover new possibilities to plan architectural forms. In this paper we study corbusian window panels using PM. The methodological procedures were: i) drawing of the grid of proportions; ii) parametric redrawing of the red and blue series; iii) geometric study of the so-called “jeu des panneaux”, with the reconstruction of the 2.26 m square and its golden section; iv) development of algorithms based on the values of the red and blue series; v) generation of combinations among parameters; vi) discussion of results and analysis. Using Grasshopper, the aim of this article is to report the parametric study of the red and blue series of the corbusian Modulor.
