Dublin, An Urban History

By Niall McCullough

Dublin was one of Europe's largest cities in the 18th century, but it has never really been studied for its potential contribution to the history of European urbanism. This book is about its physical structure, an exploration of the city plan over time, how early marks of movement or ownership became a layered tissue of meaning, releasing an understanding of its urban architectural tradition. The greatest expression of this palimpsest remains the Georgian city plan, a series of autonomous classical urban fragments adjusted to an underlying historical and geographical structure.
