Architecti est scientia pluribus disciplinis et variis eruditionibus ornata, cuius indicio probantur omnia quae ab ceteris artibus perficiuntur opera. ea nascitur ex fabrica et ratiocinatione. fabrica est continuata ac trita usus meditatio, qua manibus perficitur e materia cuiuscumque generis opus est ad propositum deformationis.

Architecture is a science arising out of many other sciences, and adorned with much and varied learning; by the help of which a judgment is formed of those works which are the result of other arts. Practice and theory are its parents. Practice is the frequent and continued contemplation of the mode of executing any given work, or of the mere operation of the hands, for the conversion of the material in the best and readiest way.

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
