Cultures around the world mourn and commemorate the deaths of their loved ones — friends, families, pets — but buildings rarely receive the same emotional attention. Unless a structure plays a beloved role in society or is deemed to have intrinsic historic value, it is often razed in the name of new development without the shedding of a single tear. Join us for a conversation about how we celebrate the lifespan of buildings and what that says about their role in our lives. Co-presented by Department of Here.
