She conducted her PhD research in collaboration with the University of Technology TUDelft (2011-2013). Her Ph.D. dissertation investigated the theory of proportion in architecture through the work of Dutch architect and Benedictine monk Hans van der Laan and his plastic number system.

Tiziana Proietti published several articles and books about proportion in architecture. In particular, she is author of Concinnitas. Principi estetici nell’opera di Leon Battista Alberti (Nuova Cultura, 2010) and Ordine e Proporzione. Dom Hans van der Laan e l’espressività dello spazio architettonico (Quodlibet, 2015).
