Preserved in the Smithsonian Museum of American History There is little information or evidence about major architectural theory in antiquity, until the 1st century BC, with the work of Vitruvius. This does not mean, however, that such works did not exist, given that many works never survived antiquity. Vitruvius was a Roman writer , architect , and engineer active in the 1st century BC. He was the most prominent architectural theorist in the Roman Empire known today, having written De architectura known today as The Ten Books of Architecture , a treatise written in Latin and Greek on architecture, dedicated to the emperor Augustus.
