Lately I find myself looking at buildings (usually homes) around the city in a new way. So many of the homes downtown have countless additions and renovations; corrections and alterations that have been done over the course of their lives. The style, type, and quality of these additions varies wildly, leaving one guessing at how the life of the building has played out, and of course, looking at the life of any building (especially a private home) is looking at the lives and priorities of its inhabitants.
Which reminds me, I need to put a hold on What Technology Wants at the good ol’ TPL. (oh, good, 85 holds, 0 copies.)
