Vitruvius lived within spaces that contained implicitarchitectural codes for him to ponder. He prescribed Romanarchitecture not as he saw it, but rather, as he imagined it. TheRoman architect lived within an urban setting that was highlydynamic and not readily interpreted. Notions related to specificand ideal spaces were stored within the minds of builders and inturn shaped, according to a particular set of pre-existing culturaland built traditions. The corresponding looseness thatcharacterizes the writing of Vitruvius has rendered increasinglyimaginative interpretations. Through transcriptions, translations,emendations and the eventual inclusion of drawings, the transformedbook has enabled the classical imagination to become fused tomemories of what monuments should be. The difficulties arise whenthe architects and archaeologists of today, eager to convincethemselves and others of their theoretic, forget that thearchitectural memory residing in the minds of Vitruvius and hisarchitect colleagues remains elusive. Memory was key within thebuilding trades and memory is thus part of our key in interpretingDe architectura.
