Greek and Roman Architecture and Cosmological Perceptions

My study seeks to draw a comparison between the architectural thinking guidelines and the philosophical cosmological perceptions in ancient Greek and Rome. The aim is to demonstrate the consistency between architectural ideas, methods and techniques to the philosophical understanding of nature, the structure of the universe and the powers that control the order in the world. Much of the discussion in the research deals with regularities such as geometry, symmetry and harmony that stand as universal laws. The common ground of these two independent disciplines, i.e. architecture and philosophy, are analyzed through various primary texts with a focal point of view of Vitruvius' De Arichtectura.
