Riverscapes are the main arteries of the world's largest cities, and have, for millennia, been the lifeblood of the urban communities that have developed around them. These human settlements - given life through the space of the local waterscape - soon developed into ritualised spaces that sought to harness the dynamism of the watercourse and create the local architectural landscape.

Theorized via a sophisticated understanding of history, space, culture, and ecology, this collection of wonderful and deliberately wide-ranging case studies, from Early Modern Italy to the contemporary Bangladeshi delta, investigate the culture of human interaction with rivers and the nature of urban topography. By emphasising the enthalpic nature of the hydrosphere, and the way in which architectural design narrativized these global traits, Riverine explores the ways in which urban planning doubles as a social relic of the rivers themselves and how these thoroughfares have imbued the cultural landscape with ritual and structural meaning.
