This book presents a revised take on the Architectural Grand Tour. Instead of focusing on individual, historically significant examples, the Atlas looks at the city as a series of overlapping networks, where the most recognizable spaces are not read in isolation but instead as integrated, dynamic components. The Atlas begins with the contemporary city of Rome and situates it within a larger set of urban and natural systems. Each chapter presents a collection of sites (architecture, landscape, and infrastructure) grouped around thematic readings of the city, helping the reader to understand how the city behaves, why it is shaped the way it is, and how it has evolved over time.
