Abstract [en]

In this article the author highlights the discourseon the ideal home by a close reading of twohistorically important treatises, namely De architecturalibri decem (c. 25 BC) by Vitruvius andDe re aedificatoria (1452) by Leon Battista Alberti.Attention is made to focus on these authors’ideas concerning the design of house and home.Three overarching themes — aesthetic, functionand environmental psychology — crystallise outand are discussed in relation to thoughts propoundedby other theorists, above all in the 19thand 20th centuries. This article, then, is a historicalretrospect and a theoretical discussion, ofpresent-day relevance, concerning the theory ofarchitecture. The discourse on domestic architecturehas centred round both quantifiable and unquantifiablequalities, but Vitruvius’ classic triadof durability, utility and beauty (firmitas, utilitas,venustas) appears fundamental. Other aspects,however, such as the vital interaction betweenman and environment, appear to possess a validitytranscending time and space.
