Striving to create an ideal development, they want for it to stick in its unique kingdom indefinitely, viewing any next changes as uncomfortable side effects or the result of degeneration. the precise is for a section of structure to stay completely ideal and entire. This contrasts sharply with truth the place adjustments occur as humans flow in, standards switch, occasions take place, and construction fabrics are topic to put on and tear.

Rumiko Handa argues it's time to right this imbalance. utilizing examples starting from the Roman Coliseum to eastern tea rooms, she attracts awareness to a space that's often neglected: the attract of incomplete, imperfect and impermanent structure. through concentrating on what occurs to structures once they are ‘complete’, she exhibits that the ‘afterlife’ is actually the very ‘life’ of a building.
