2) Architecture – Origins

ORIGIN OF ARCHITECTURE
  • Building first evolved out of the dynamics between (shelter, security, worship etc.) and means (available building materials and attendant skills).
  • As human cultures developed and knowledge began to be formalized through oral traditions and practices, building became a craft, and “architecture” is the name given to the most highly formalized and respected versions of that craft.
  • It is widely assumed that architectural success was the product of a process of trial and error, with progressively less trial and more replication as the results of the process proved increasingly
  • The earliest surviving written work on the subject of architecture is De architectura, by the Roman architect Vitruvius in the early 1st century.
