Born to the Republic during the 1st Century BC, Vitruvius' architectural trinity (firmitas, utilitas, and venustas, referring to "strength", "utility", and "beauty") became the inspiration for many buildings in the Roman empire. Perhaps even more impressive, his discussion of perfect proportion in architecture remained relevant 1600 years later when Leonardo da Vinci transferred these principles to the human body,  producing his Vitruvian Man.
