Teotihuacán architects based designs on 83cm unit of measurement

The architects responsible for designing the ancient city of Teotihuacán in Mexico based their designs off an 83cm measure.

The researcher said that by making calculations based on the measurements of the pyramids at Teotihuacán, he was able to determine “the constant presence” of the 83-centimeter unit.

Sugiyama, an associate research professor at Arizona State University and professor at Aichi Prefectural University in Japan, said that the stairway, the roof beams and the distance between the sculptures of snakeheads at the Quetzalcoatl Pyramid all use this measurement.
