"Asia minor, present day Turkey, is rich in cities from numerous cultures built over thousands of years. Eva Liebermann, a veteran urban designer who has worked in San Francisco for over 30 years, will discuss urban elements from the ancient port city of Troy, Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite empire, as well as show examples of Hellenistic and Roman cities, Byzantine rock dwellings, the "Caves of God" and a mixed-use development of Seljuk times."
