Architecture

"The aim of this book is to expand the subject and matter of architecture, and to explore their interdependence. Hill and his contributors acknowledge architecture far beyond the familiar boundaries of the discipline and reassess the object at is center: the building. It is whatever architecture is made of, whether words, bricks, blood cells, sounds, or pixels. The fifteen chapters are divided into three sections--buildings, spaces, and bodies--which each deal with a particular understanding of architecture and architectural matter." --Cover.

The Architecture of Rome

Architects and artists have always acknowledged over the centuries that Rome is rightly called the 'eternal city'. Rome is eternal above all because it was always young, always 'in its prime'. Here the buildings that defined the West appeared over more than 2000 years, here the history of European architecture was written. The foundations were laid even in ancient Roman times, when the first attempts were made to design interiors and thus make space open to experience as something physical. And at that time the Roman architects also started to develop building types that are still valid today, thus creating the cornerstone of later Western architecture. In it Rome's primacy remained unbroken...
