Creative Commons license Urban planning - Delos [Sept. 24, 2019]


The orthogonal city planning was not uniformly adopted in the Greek and Roman periods. The city of Delos, which was heavily urbanized during the 2nd century BCE is a prime example. In fact, the geomorphology and economy of the city very often defined urban planning decisions. In the case of Delos, broader sustainability concerns such as water and waste management, combined with local geographical parameters and economic priorities, influenced the urban planning decisions governing the development of the city in the Hellenistic period.
