Is it possible to identify a universal sense of beauty – a definition of beauty that can be applied to all people at all times? Don’t our ideas of beauty shift and fight and transform themselves in different times and spaces?
Marcus Vitruvius, the famous Ancient Roman architect, believed that an architect should focus on three central themes when preparing a design for a building: Utilitas (functionality), Firmitas (strength) and Venustas (beauty). He believed that the body’s proportions could be used as a model of natural proportional perfection and showed that the ‘ideal’ human body fitted precisely into both a circle and a square, and he thus illustrated the link that he believed existed between perfect geometric forms and the perfect body. In this way, the body was seen as a living rulebook, containing the fixed and faultless laws set down by nature.
