Feb 1, 2012  |   Contributor: Susan Kime  |  2 Comments

The Design Intelligence of Dr. Juergen Gessler, CEO of Porsche Design Group

Aug 19, 2011  |   Contributor: Susan Kime

In De Architectura, the Roman architect Vitruvius, living in the 1 BCE, stated that a building's architecture should meet three essential criteria: commodity (utilities), firmness (firmitas), and delight (venustas).
