Since 2013, Juan Navarro Baldeweg’s new Bibliotheca Hertziana has been placed on the site of the garden of Federico Zuccari’s house in the urban centre of Rome. This book presents the design of this example of contemporary architecture and, in detail, its bold and cutting-edge construction process. The environmental constraints of the site, sandwiched between busy roads and monumental buildings; the unusual technical difficulties; the original and audacious technical solutions; the creative contribution of the professionals and of the building workers involved all contribute to a

fascinating story about how an architectural challenge has enriched Rome with a new masterpiece. The aim of the book is to redefine new technical guidelines for future interventions in historic environments where there are rigid archaeological constraints.
