Exploring some theories about community cultivation that I think map to architectural theory. Researching “out loud” here.

As documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, architecture defines the structure and/or behavior of a building or any other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed.

The earliest written work on the subject of architecture is De architectura, by the Roman architect Vitruvius in the early 1st century CE. According to Vitruvius, a good building should satisfy the three principles of firmitatis utilitatis venustatis, which translates roughly as:

  • Durability – it should stand up robustly and remain in good condition.
  • Utility – it should be useful and function well for the people using it.

  • Beauty – it should delight people and raise their spirits.
