So, a double square---11" x 22". This proportion is perhap best echoed in the humble concrete block---or in some of Wright's Usonian Automatic blocks. The Pope house is wood and brick, however.

It's good to see a non-Taliesin documentation of a perf design in detail. Someone could duplicate this effort by documenting all of the known perf designs, to make a collection of accurate depictions, all (presumably) at the same scale.
