De re aedificatoria On the Art of Building is a classic architectural treatise written by Leon Battista Alberti between and It was followed in with the first printed edition of Vitruvius. Alberti's Ten Books consciously echoes Vitruvius's writing, but Alberti also adopts a critical attitude toward his predecessor. In his discussion, Alberti includes a wide variety of literary sources, including Plato and Aristotle , presenting a concise version of the sociology of architecture.

De re aedificatoria is subdivided into ten books and includes:. In his survey of desirable floor plans for sacred buildings — "temples" in his phrase—Alberti begins with the ideal form of the circle, which is expressed in numerous examples of Nature. Nine ideal centrally— planned geometrical shapes are recommended for churches; besides the circle he lists the square, the hexagon, octagon, decagon and dodecagon, all derived from the circle, and, derived from the square, rectangles that exhibit the square and a half, square and a third and double square, all of which have enharmonic parallels in music.

Chapels add small geometric figures to the basic circles and polygons to give a great variety of floor plans, in which each geometrical figure retains its clear unity and simple ratios that bind all elements of the plans and elevations into a harmonic unity. De re aedificatoria remained the classic treatise on architecture from the 16th until the 18th century.

In Book Nine, Alberti presents his comments about aesthetic theory and beauty which Borsi summarizes on page of his Alberti book stating: "In short, what are the elements that constitute beauty? Or what elements derive from each particular kind of beauty? The question is a difficult one. Otherwise they would clash and the beauty of the whole be lost.

This enquiry and selection is in itself far from easy or obvious. But it is particularly hazardous and difficult in the field we have chosen to enquire into, for architecture consists of so many various parts, and each of these parts requires so many different ornaments, as we have already seen. For Borsi, Alberti is deriving his viewpoint from the Enneads by Plotinus. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Further information: Mathematics and architecture and Mathematics and art.

Alberti left Rome with the Pope at such times and spent time at the court in Rimini. Nicholas V, who was Pope from to , was an enthusiast for classical studies and produced an environment much suited to Alberti. Drawing upon a critical reading of De Architectura by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius and a first-hand antiquarian knowledge of Classical remains , he put forward the first coherent theory of the use of the five Classical orders of Greek architecture since Antiquity , relating their use to different classes of building. The collaboration between Alberti and Nicholas V gave rise to the first grandiose building projects of Renaissance Rome , initiating among other works the reconstruction of St. As the Este prince was now dead, it was to Nicholas V that Alberti dedicated in the monumental theoretical result of his long study of Vitruvius. The work was the first architectural treatise of the Renaissance. It covered a wide range of subjects, from history to town planning , and engineering to the philosophy of beauty.

De Re Aedificatoria / On Architecture

Leon Battista Alberti wrote De re aedificatoria in the middle of the 15 th century. The terminus post quem for the beginning of the writing is traditionally set in , the date at which the humanist left Florence to go back to Rome. During his stay in the Eternal City he apparently favored the study of architecture and Latin prose over that of the common language and figurative arts. Krautheimer , p. As for the terminus ante quem of the end of the work, it can be dated thanks to Biondo Flavio's indications. He was a colleague of Alberti's and defined him as the author of the most elegant book on the art of building. The De re aedificatoria was conceived of and written in Latin, deliberately deprived of illustrations which, according to Alberti himself, were "extraneous to the project" res ab instituto aliena , ed.
