Deep integral-field spectroscopy, coupled with high-resolution imaging
from the optical to the far-infrared, allows us to trace the growth of
disk galaxies since the peak epoch of cosmic star formation, and the
emergence of bulges within them as they reach the massive end of the
mass function.  I will present recent findings on the structural
evolution of galaxies from deep lookback surveys with HST and ALMA,
and insights on their kinematic nature leveraging the large
multiplexing capabilities of modern-day spectrographs such as KMOS.
