ABOUT TRIA | WHAT DOES TRIA MEAN? 1. Three Principles. The ancient Roman architect Vitruvius defined good architecture in the first century A.D. as that which provides Firmitas (structural strength), Utilitas (usefulness), and Venustas (beauty). These three principles are included in all great works throughout the history of architecture. One form of the Latin number three is tria. 2. Three Orders. In ancient Greece, the use of three orders, or styles, of columns were used on all great temples of the period. The first were the simple, strong Doric columns, then the more slender and elegant Ionic columns, and finally the incredibly ornate Corinthian columns. The Greek word for the number three is tria. 3. Three Partners. It is said that a team is successful when the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Tria brings together three very talented partners that feed off each other to provide a better service to our clients. The British Order of the Bath coined the motto “tria juncta in uno” or “three joined into one”.
