The Archisutra is a design manual giving you the necessary data for a selection of sex positions, using annotated scale drawings and informative descriptions. Swiss architect Le Corbusier coined the phrase 'machines for living', within his book, 'Towards an Architecture' in 1923. Sex plays a large role in society and everyday life. So, why is it so often overlooked when an architect designs a building? The Archisutra raises the question: How should we design for sex? In 1490 Leonardo da Vinci sketched the Vitruvian Man, a diagram showing the proportions of man based on the writings of Vitruvius in 400AD. The sketch of the Vitruvian Man depicts the perfect male form as seen by Vitruvius. Vitruvius aimed to discover the mathematical proportions of the human body and use the findings to improve the function and appearance of architecture. In more modern times, the architect Le Corbusier devised an anthropometric scale of proportions, a further development from Vitruvius' work. He called his system The Modulor. The Modulor, was a standard model of the human form used by Le Corbusier to determine the correct amount of living space needed for residents in his buildings. The Archisutra follows on from the work of Vitruvius, da Vinci and Le Corbusier and pushes the idea that buildings should be designed around human life.

Redesign your sex life with this tongue-in-cheek architecture and design-themed take on the Kama Sutra. 'Truss Me', 'Eames it in' and 'Get an Eiffel' are just some of the sexual positions listed in this architecture- and design-themed take on the Kama Sutra, the ancient Indian Hindu guide to love and sex. Le Corbusier coined the phrase 'machines for living' in his book, Towards an Architecture in 1923. Sex plays a large role in society and everyday life. So why is it so often overlooked when an architect designs a building? Miguel Bolivar's tongue-incheek sex manual uses witty descriptions and annotated scale drawings to demonstrate various sexual positions, all inspired by iconic buildings and often incorporating surprising uses for designer furniture. The Archisutra builds on the work of Vitruvius, da Vinci and Le Corbusier in pushing the idea that buildings should be designed around human life.
