Vitruvius: On Architecture
"Mausoleum": engraving by C. Holdenwang, 1800 Frontispiece to the Latin edition of the de Architectura by Augustus Rode, meant as a reconstruction of the mausoleum of Halicarnassus. A caption refers the reader to the Preface to Book VII of Vitruvius and to . (For some much more recent reconstructions and a good critical discussion of what is involved, see the article by W. R. Lethaby Another orphan text that no one wanted to enter, but that many nevertheless will be glad to see online. (Why is it that the self-aggrandizements of Cicero, the lecheries and whining of Ovid and the blatherings of that debauched old goose Seneca made it onto the Net before the works that give us solid technical information about what Rome was really good at, viz. the construction of her great buildings and works of engineering?) As always, I retyped the text rather than scanning it: not only to minimize errors prior to proofing, but as an opportunity for me to become intimately familiar with the work, an exercise which I heartily recommend. (Well-meaning attempts to get me to scan text, if successful, would merely turn me into some kind of machine: gambit declined.)

Click here for audio of Episode 580. Today, we learn that to hold knowledge, we must also add to it. The University of Houston's College of Engineering presents this series about the machines that make our civilization run, and the people whose ingenuity created them. I n the years just before Christ was born, the chief engineer of the civilized world was a man named Vitruvius. Vitruvius began as an architect and engineer under Julius Caesar. Later he took charge of the first Augustus's siege engines. When Augustus died, Vitruvius retired. Then, under Octavian's patronage, he wrote a ten-volume account of known technology. Here we see how much more than a mere armorer he was. But we also see the weakness of Roman technology. Vitruvius's scope is astonishing. Historians call him the great Roman architect. Most of his books do deal with buildings. But look more closely: He talks about city planning, building materials, and acoustics. He has a lot to say about timekeeping. He explains water clocks and sundials. He describes all kinds of pumps. Before he's done, he's written about astronomy, medicine, music, the arts even contract law. We have problems with Vitruvius, though. His books came down through medieval copyists. Medieval engineers saw them as a living handbook, not documents to be preserved. We have to separate his work from the stuff people added to it.

Roman Architect
Marcus Vitruvius is the author of the famous treatise 'De architectura'.
The work is divided into 10 books dealing with city planning and architecture in general; building materials; temple construction; public buildings; and private buildings; clocks, hydraulics; and civil and military engines. Vitruvius was an admirer of Greek architecture and wished to preserve the classical tradition in the design of temples and public buildings. His work was used as a classic text book from ancient Roman times to the Renaissance. www link :

A full online translation of Vitruvius is available at the Latin Library , and there is discussion on the Britanica website This is the first and most famous text in the history of western landscape architecture, architecture, enginering and town planning. In Roman times the architect was, from the word’s Greek etymology, a ‘chief technician’. The Ten Books' Contents list reveals that most aspects of engineering, including harbours, site planning, clocks, aqueducts, pumps and siege engines, come with the author's technical scope. Only a tiny proportion of these subjects come within the twenty-first century scope of ‘architecture’. Vitruvius Pollio’s treatise De Architectura , was written circa 27 BC and is the only book of its kind to survive from antiquity. These online extracts from Vitruvius comprise the first Book and his comments on what we would now classify as garden design. Book 1 The Preface is used by the author as an opportunity to fawn on his emperor.

vitruvius (Cesare Cesariano, Como 1521)
This is a profusely illustrated edition of the most famous of antique texts on architecture. It was known throughout the Middle Ages, in multiple copies and probably versions. Unfortunately, it reached the Renaissance without illustrations. For such a subject, this was a grave drawback - the more so since Vitruvius' Latin was not of the easiest (cf. Alberti's comment that 'The Greeks thought he was writing in Latin, and the Latins in Greek"). Although the dearth of original illustrations, and the difficulty of the language, meant impenetrability, it also gave marvellous freedom to the Renaissance. Various of the editors/illustrators of Vitruvius were able to see antique architecture in their own image, as it were; so that Renaissance editions of Vitruvius give us a clear picture of antique architecture in their own image, as it were; so that Renaissance editions of Vitruvius give us a clear picture of just how narrow was the renaissance' perception of some aspects of antique architecture.

Little is know of the life of Marcus Vitruvius Pollio other than what he reveals in his ten books on architecture. He lived at some time between the death of Julius Caesar and the battle of Actium, probably in the reign of Augustus. The dedication of the books indicates that Augustus was the patron of Vitruvius, so that the books were probably presented in about 25 BCE. From the text one can gather that Vitruvius was a creative person with wide-ranging interests. He clearly took pride in architecture as serving the needs of man and providing an important expression of human endeavor. Vitruvius aims to demonstrate the excellence of the science that he possesses, but warns that talent is not enough for success in architecture: favor and ambition play their part; and money, good connections, and eloquence are essential. As in other arts, an architect must constantly keep in view the intention and the material used to express that intention. He must also be versed in history, law, moral philosophy and physics. Vitruvius presents architecture as a thoroughly humanistic art.

Marcus Vitruvius Lodge N o I am a Past Master of my Mother Lodge, Marcus Vitruvius. For those non-Freemasons that may be reading, a Freemason refers to the Lodge that he was initiated into as his Mother Lodge. Marcus meets at the Central London Masonic Centre in Clerkenwell Green in the City of London, about half a mile from St. Paul's Cathedral. The Centre was originally the Middlesex Sessions Court and was bought by a number of Lodges in the 1970's and converted into a Masonic Centre. It now houses several Temples (the rooms where Masonic meetings take place), Lodge of Instruction Rooms (where Masons meet to practice the ceremonies), two bars and several Dining Rooms. In October 1927, nineteen Brethren presented a petition to the United Grand Lodge of England for a warrant to hold a Lodge at the Cannon Street Station Restaurant in the City of London. A Warrant was granted by Grand Lodge, the petition (which was sponsored by Vitruvian Lodge N o . 87) having been accepted. On the 4th January 1928, the Marcus Vitruvius Lodge N o.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Marcus Vitruvius Pollio was a Roman writer architect and engineer , active in the 1st century BC. He is the author of De Architectura, known today as The Ten Books of Architecture, a treatise in Latin on architecture , and perhaps the first work about this discipline. Mainly known for his writings, Vitruvius was himself an architect; Frontinus says he was in charge of the aqueducts of Rome. He is often colloquially referred to as the first architect Among notable concepts contained in De Architectura (probably written between 27 and 23 B.C.), Vitruvius declares that quality depends on the social relevance of the artist 's work, not on the form or workmanship of the work itself. Perhaps the most famous declaration from De Architectura is one still bandied in architectural circles: "Well building hath three conditions: firmness, commodity, and delight." This quote is taken from Sir Henry Wotton 's translation of 1624, and there is some debate about whether it is a direct translation or a paraphrase of Vitruvius' meaning. Nonetheless, it is most often attributed to Vitruvius, rather than to Wotton.
