Ten Books on Architecture

Gelesen von Fredrik Karlsson

(4,729 Sterne; 24 Bewertungen)

On Architecture is a treatise on architecture written by the Roman architect Vitruvius and dedicated to his patron, the emperor Caesar Augustus as a guide for building projects. The work is one of the most important sources of modern knowledge of Roman building methods as well as the planning and design of structures, both large (aqueducts, buildings, baths, harbours) and small (machines, measuring devices, instruments). He is also the prime source of the famous story of Archimedes and his bath-time discovery. (Summary from Wikipedia) (9 hr 34 min)

great read

(5 Sterne)

many of the thoughts from this book are now on media as "latest (re)inventions". an easy, interesting and approachable read for professionals and laity alike.

A comprehensive work

(3 Sterne)

It suffers a little from the audio format, as there are mathematical aspects which would be easier to comprehend with diagrams. Interesting little bits of folklore sprinkled through.
