Museum of the Evolution of Iron and Steel - Trenton, New Jersey
"The origins of the word museum stem directly from allusions to the process of death. Similarly the ideas behind historic preservation also find their roots in the saving of a 'dying' artifact. Through the combination of museum and historic ruin this thesis will attempt to bring both the ruin and the artifacts exhibited within the museum back to life. This life will be sustained through the celebration of site, history, and technology, and its overall significance in the development of the community, and its contribution to the world at large."
