Abstract: We give a method for constructing relatively small smooth simplicial resolutions of singular projective algebraic varieties. For varieties of dimension $ n$, at most $ n$ applications of the basic process yields a resolution of combinatorial dimension at most $ n$. The object so obtained may be used to compute the mixed Hodge stucture of the underlying variety.
