“What happens when an object loses its original purpose? Why does architecture find itself displaced, unwanted and repurposed?
Buildings and physical infrastructure possess a longue durée that is fundamental to their spatial and political impact.
But their long-term pretension can also become their undoing: politics, society, media and culture change faster than bricks and concrete.
Structures can usually adjust only in very expensive ways: with renovation or destruction.
History leaves behind either heritage or rubble, both a sort of an architectural ‘living dead’.
