Abstract: It is possible to claim that Vitruvian description of what architecture consists of were the product of collective human knowledge embodied in metaphysics, philosophy, science, and art. Vitruvius developed a body of knowledge of his contemporary concepts concerning their contextual distinctions and connotations. He made an all-encompassing conceptualization and skilful synthesis of them in a communicable form for design, construction and education. He described the tangible and intangible, qualitative, and quantitative components of architecture and proposed an understanding on how to incorporate them. Despite that his historical, mythological, metaphysical, and even some archaeological references are irrelevant for today, there is still a lot to learn from Vitruvius’ reasoning and method on architectural design. There is a shortage of Vitruvian studies in Turkey. Vitruvian content should be re-visited, re-considered, and translated with a critical and contemporary approach. In order to overcome the contemporary crises of architectural theory, particularly in Turkey, it is vital to reflect upon the domain by means of its own sources, terminology, and knowledge.
