The reconstruction after an earthquake  The earthquake is a force flattening a knurled town  It is a force of nature escaping control  Numerous towns flattened by earthquakes and reconstructed  Deliberate urban plans for reconstruction known in more recent history  Earthquakes destroy the sedentary space, but, although it proves that it was constructed in a dangerous zone, it is built again in that zone or close to it  Local seismic culture
  • 18. The reconstruction after an earthquake  Baixa in Lisbon  1755 earthquake  Baroque  The earthquake destroyed the medieval tissue (Alfama)  Marques de Pombal
