'De Huysbou' - A Reconstruction of an Unfinished Treatise on Architecture, Town Planning

and Civil Engineering by Simon Stevin
Simon Stevin (1548-1620) was one of the leading scholars of his day. As a scientist and engineer, he carved a career for himself in the breakaway Dutch Republic of the Northern Low Countries, developing theoretical innovations in mathematics and physics as well as practical innovations in civil engineering and military technology. Less well known is the project that Stevin worked on during the last twenty years of his life, a treatise on architecture and town planning. The earliest mention of Huysbou occurs in the first volume of Stevin's work on mathematics and other natural sciences, Wisconstighe Ghedachtenissen ('Mathematical Memoirs'), published in 1605.
