This book presents an in-depth analysis of the urban fabric of the Roman Villa Adriana, which is a bright example of a hedonistic approach to urbanism, and shows, in addition, how motives behind urban planning have changed over time. Beyond Luxury is written with the conviction that architects are, apart from being building professionals, visionaries with social engagements and ideals. The author questions the current ideology behind urbanism and seeks to unravel the forces driving the materialization of our environment. With his insights and convictions, Scarciglia invites his peers, architects and urban planners, to reflect on the current qualities of urban developments.
