Eurythmy is one of Vitrivius’s fundamental principles of architecture cited in the first and most influential book of architectural theory, The Ten Books of Architecture in 1BC. This important discipline of proportional judgement is now forgotten in the artistic and scientific practice of architecture and in contemporary theory.

Our task in this selected study of a number of buildings in Dublin is to reclaim the lost practice of eurythmy and make it once again an essential tool in conception and perception of architecture.
