Melvyn Bragg on ‘De Architectura’

BBC Radio 4’s ‘In our time’ recently featured a 45-minute discussion on Vitruvius’ ‘De Architectura’, the only surviving work on architecture from the ancient world. Melvyn Bragg and guests, including architectural historian Robert Tavernor, offer some fascinating context for the original manuscript, and look at its ‘rediscovery’ during the Renaissance and continuing appeal to architects today.
