“Urboglyphs” (Urban Figures of Memory) and Spaces of Lived Experience: New Forms to Reawaken the Memory

  • Abstract:
    Memory now consumes the past as a set of reconstructed images manipulated and rearranged at random, and in this mimicking they say nothing about the city as a whole. So, how can the city become the locus of collective memory and not simply an outdoor museum or a collection of historic districts? Memory is above all anti-museum that unfolds in space, constructed as lived and moving expression that the arts of the city building must recover along with spatial reconstruction.
