Urban Spaces - URBS is the first international series to open up a special forum for the current architectural and urban issues of Ancient Architectural History and Classical Archeology. It aims to bring architectural and urbanistic analyzes as well as architectural and spatial sociological questions into a mutually fruitful dialogue. The focus is on architectural and urban research on the cultures of classical antiquity and their cultural precursors; Another theme is the reception and transformation of corresponding ancient phenomena in the neighboring cultures and the subsequent cultures of late antiquity, Islam, the Middle Ages and modern times.
Discussions range from individual architectural and spatial findings to structural types of construction and space of various public, private, religious and economic functions, to complex urban facilities or the relationship between city and surrounding area or individual cities. The study explores spaces and buildings in terms of their functional quality as well as their representative dimension in the foundation of political power, social difference and cultural identity. Individual rooms or spatial sequences are questioned in addition to their concrete construction in their effect on the user and their perception.
