City Plate Collection #4
Our fourth series of City Plates. The theme of this fourth collection is "Empire Building."
To explore this theme, we selected the following four cities: London, Rome, Mexico City, and Tokyo. Empires throughout time have had not only a local impact on the imperial city (the seat of power) but also a global impact: on settlement patterns, national borders, cultural identity, and city form. But empires have a lifespan. How does a former world power adjust to a new identity and come to terms with a new global order?
