Price: Not Available
Description: Milan: Skira, 2010. 21cm., pbk., 135pp. illus., most in color. English text. Summary: Rome: The Centre(s) Elsewhere is the result of a Berlage Institute postgraduate studio led by Pier Vittorio Aureli and Martino Tattara, in collaboration with Gabriele Mastrigli. The book, developed by an international team of researchers, proposes both the definition of a new urban strategy for the city of Rome and a critical framework through which to understand the city’s history. Going beyond the grandeur of the past and the uncertainty of the present, Rome: The Centre(s) Elsewhere offers a project for the city’s possible future by reclaiming the greatest and yet currently neglected asset of its urban structure: the consular roads system. The book is a critical and concise pamphlet about urban design and the project of the city. It represents an attempt to gather into one approach the issues of large-scale design, political thinking, and urban history.
