Richard Ingersoll


Richard Ingersoll earned a Ph.D. in Architectural History at UC Berkeley and has taught at Rice University, ETH Zürich, and since 1997 at Syracuse University in Florence. He recently published World Architecture, a Cross-Cultural History (Oxford University Press, 2013), a revision of Spiro Kostof’s History of Architecture (1985). In his book Sprawltown, Looking for the City on its Edges ( Princeton Architectural Press, 2006; first published in Italian as Sprawltown, cercando la città in periferia, Roma, 2004) he first proposed the notion of Agricivismo as a means of mitigating the effects of sprawl.
