The Vitruvian House. A professor of mine, Thomas Gordon Smith, set out to create a home, according to Marcus Vitruvius Pollio. The house is wild. In the oecus, TGS, himself, has frescoed ancient architects and their patrons. He also collects 19th C. glassware. It’s typically everywhere. I thought I was going to break it all while I was there for hors d’ouvres. Thankfully, I only walked away with a few bruises.
