Individuality within Regularity: Visualizing Roman Design in North Africa
Architectural historians and archaeologists have an embarrassment of riches with Roman North Africa; there is evidence for about 675 municipal entities. Thus, North Africa is an excellent place to study architectural and urban design during the Roman Empire. In this talk, Professor Morton will discuss the ‘individuality within regularity’ of architectural and urban design in Roman Africa and will use 3D visualizations to help articulate the Roman design process.
