From the lessons of the past come the learnings for the future
In Classical times Master Builders were tasked with the important role of overseeing the design and construction of significant buildings.
They were Polymaths - both generalists and specialists, knowledgeable in matters of design, science, art and engineering, nature and mathematics.
Leonardo da Vinci is perhaps the most celebrated Polymath known. His famous illustration timelessly celebrates the relationship between human proportions and (architectural) design.
Where does the name 'Vitruvion' come from?
Vitruvius - a Roman author, architect, engineer, and military man.
Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, (1st century BC) was the author of the celebrated De architectura (On Architecture), a handbook for Roman architects. De architectura is divided into 10 books.
His discussion of perfect proportion in architecture and the human body led to the famous Renaissance drawing by Leonardo da Vinci of Vitruvian Man.
He invented the idea that all buildings should have three attributes: firmitas, utilitas, and venustas, meaning: strength (firm), utility, and beauty.
So in a nutshell - Vitruvion is a new take on the old.
We take the learnings from the past to inform our decisions for the future.
