Take a closer look at some of Frank Lloyd Wrights buildings. In my opinion, he was a master at creating space on an intimate scale, that is, he was very aware of how the space related to the human body. The term intimate does not merely connotate a small enclosed space however.
Monumental scale on the other hand has no relationship to the scale of the human body. Manhatten is the closest example I can give you to monumental scale off the top of my head. The urban landscape, skyscrapers, etc. could be referred to as "monumental". A 50 story building has little if any relationship to the pedestrian. The interior of the building could work on an intimate level, but the volume would be referred to as monumental. Hope this helps, its early and i'm half awake! :)
