Uneternal City Urbanism Beyond Rome

Synopsis

Uneternal City Urbanism Beyond Rome by Aaron Betsky

Uneternalcity is a multiplicity of projects performed by a dozen architects from around the world, some of them local, some from far away, that provoke a revelation of what Rome is and always has been, and what Rome has become and continually is becoming. If it is possible to figure it out and to re-imagine and reimage Rome the way it appears in our mind's eye when we think of city, then we can make sense of any post-city urban landscape that is our new home in the world.

Reviews

Rome still smells Roman even if the presence of its great monuments are spread throughout the whole area.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!
