Contents Introduction -- An episodic journey -- Archaeology -- A way of working
Summary Episodic Urbanism is a book about the transformation of two city blocks in the heart of Melbourne, Australia. It tells the story of how Peter Elliott Architecture + Urban Design has worked, over the course of nearly two decades, to turn RMIT University's inner city premises from what was essentially a private fortress into a public-spirited urban campus. Touching on everything from Renaissance Italian townscapes to masterworks of 20th century city-making by the likes of Carlo Scarpa, Luis Barragan and Joze Plecnik, Episodic Urbanism illuminates the unique conceptual framework underpinning the success of RMIT's rejuvenation
