Writing near the end of the first century B.C.E, Roman architect Vitruvius Pollio identified three elements necessary for a well-designed building: firmitas (firmness), utilitas (utility), and venustas (delight). All architecture aspire towards delight- to bring delight to those who admire, utilise, or inhabit it. Architects, in turn, learn to take delight in the act of creation, solution, or intervention. With this exhibition, we hope to inspire architects, students, parents, and friends alike to delight in architecture and be delighted by it.
