Vitruvius, de Architectura 3.2

“Moreover all these [buildings] ought to possess strength, functionality, and beauty.”

 

Haec autem ita fieri debent, ut habeatur ratio firmitatis, utilitatis, venustatis.

 

The Roman architect Vitruvius and his prescriptions for building inspired countless numbers, not in the least Leonardo da Vinci and his expression of proportions. Like building, like man.
