Poignant Nostalgia

As a 2019 Watson Fellow, I am investigating the emotional attachments developed toward forgotten and ruined structures. Understanding the reflective dynamic that connects communities to their architecture, I hope to reveal the value of ruined architecture in understanding the past for future development. My project is bringing me to China, Japan, Malaysia, Bulgaria, and England for a year of independent study and exploration of abandoned spaces.
