From the editor
Urban planning developed alongside the urbanization of mankind. The oldest written reference to urban planning is by the Greek Hippodamus (fifth century B.C.); unfortunately, no copy has been preserved; we only know about it through Aristotle’s writings. The next known reference work is the Roman architect Vitruvius’s De Architectura, a treatise in ten ancient volumes on Greek and Roman architecture, translated as The ten books on architecture. It dates to about 28 B.C. and one of those volumes is about the origin and layout of cities.
