LOCATION: Environmental Design Library Atrium, 210 Wurster Hall

Spanning the entire history of Rome from Iron Age village to modern metropolis, this is the first book to take the long view of the Eternal City as an urban organism. The book studies the urban processes by which Rome's people and leaders, both as custodians of its illustrious past and as agents of its expansive power, have shaped and conditioned its urban fabric.

Co-authored by Rabun Taylor and Katherine Rinne (MArch ‘81) the book incorporates an unpublished manuscript by the late Spiro Kostof, Professor of Architectural History at UC Berkeley (1965-1991). Please join us in honoring his legacy as we celebrate this new book.
