Description/Abstract

" The physical environment at any point in history is the result of all the various events of the history of that place prior to that moment. It tends to manifest itself as a palimpsest of artifacts and mentifacts. It is my contention that architecture has the capacity to create a space of education and reflection about history. The objective of this process is to create an architecture that reclaims and presents the history that may have vanished. "
