In your professional opinion, what makes a building a piece of Architecture rather than a building? I looked up Marcus Vitruvius, and his work. But I'm not sure what it means. I need to write about it for a project. Thanks :)

Vitruvius wrote that a building must be considered “with due reference to function, structure, and beauty” (Utilitas, Firmitas, and Venustas in his original Latin). I will give you a very VERY condense response (because this could be a book) any structure that is to be considered a building will stand (and remain standing) to fulfill its function. Utilitas means that it will be useful in some manner or will have a function. Firmitas means that its structure will stand up robustly and remain standing for as long as needed. Remember the time this was written where many structures were made of weaker materials and very susceptible to time and weather.

The one characteristic that differentiates any building to be considered architecture is Venustas aka beauty, and I don’t mean only in the aesthetic sense but in the manner that there is an idea, a concept that enriches our life, that improves the way we work, live, and play.

Does it help?
