The Architectural Orders have always occupied a key role in architectural doctrine. During the Renaissance, after the rediscovery of the Vitruvian text, each of the most famous architects gave their own interpretation of composition and proportion with respect to the Orders. After a careful analysis of some of the main treaties, it has been necessary to determine a unified interpretation of the genesis of the Orders and to create a single digital model that could be declinable in various versions. By advanced digital techniques, it was possible to generate a representative algorithm in a basic modifiable structure using different parameters. Results are also important due to the direct comparison between authors. The algorithms may also support accurate representations and interpretation of the actual artefact’s shape, allowing us to hypothesize the author’s style and, in case of restoration, to operate in a consistent way.
