Professor Gordana Fontana-Giusti lectures at the RCA

Professor Gordana Fontana-Giusti will present a new theoretical interpretation of Leon Battista Alberti’s work on 26 February at 18.30 at the Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, London SW7.

Alberti, Walls, Walling and the City.
The focus of this talk is on the effects of the displacement of the city walls in the gradual process of ‘crystallisation’ of urban space from the fifteenth century onwards, looking at the underlying dynamics of public space within the city, whereby the visible physicality of walls contains and sometimes belies the invisible logic of their effects.
