We are beginning development on an interacti​ve portal to explore the architectural evolution of Bastides in the South of France. Professor Emeritus John W. Reps explored urban landscapes and developments worldwide. His spirit of discovery and the breadth of his travels made him not only a pioneering scholar in American urban planning history, but also a quintessential urban explorer.​
