Opis: Idea of Town Anthropology of Urban Form in Rome Italy - Joseph Rykwert, Rykwert

The idea of a town must be strong enough to survive the inevitable chaotic overlay of urban experience, Joseph Rykwert asserts in this fundamental book on urban form. In his preface to this new edition he reviews the developments over the past thirty ears, in archeology, in historical and philological work, and in urban planning and architectural trends that make "The Idea of a Town" timely once again; a reminder that recognizable patterns and texture, public open space, and conspicuous institutions can enrich the late twentieth-century city which has become preoccupied with the isolated architectural object, with physical and market forces.Rykwert focuses on the Roman town as a work of art, a symbolic pattern deliberately created and enjoyed by its inhabitants - its shape and the structure of the spaces constructed on the basis of beliefs and rituals. His starting point is the ancient texts: mythical, historical, and ritual in which city-foundations are told and played out, and in particular the "Etruscan rite," a group of ceremonies which regulated the creation of practically all Roman towns.The principal institutions of the town, its walls and gates, its central shrines, and its public spaces, were all part of a pattern to which the myths which accompanied them provide clues. As in the other "closed" societies Rykwert investigates and compares throughout the book, these rituals and myths served to create a secure home for Roman citizens, placing them firmly in a knowable universe.Joseph Rykwert is Paul Philippe Cret Professor of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. "It is refreshing to look at standard themes of the history of urban design from a nonrational point of view, to see surveyors as quasi-priests and orthogonal planning as a sophisticated technique touched by divine mystery... Rykwert's lasting worth will be to wrench us away from rationalist simplicities, and to make us face the fundamental disquiet of the human spirit in its claim to a permanent place on the land."- Spiro Kostof, "Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians" (review of the second edition)
