Research project: Antiquity in Use in Urban Contexts: Preliminary Classification and Case Studies on the Adaptive Reuse of Antique Structures in Modern Cities

Antique structures still in use, documented in situ within modern urban contexts from Europe, will be analyzed in order to determine patterns of reuse throughout history. The focus will be on the urban scale overlapping of ancient and modern structures, and on the architectural scale integration of ancient structures into modern ones. Awareness of such patterns of reuse would assist urban archaeology in approaching less well documented and endangered ancient structures of modern cities.
