On the bike ride to work today, I was listening to a lecture by architect Bruce Kukabara called “Ourtopia: Ideal Cities and the Roles of Design in Remaking Urban Space.” In it he talks about an essay he read on the Sarah Polley film “Away from Her” in which Robert Fulford talked about Alzheimer’s as being “doomed to live in an eternal present” and draws a parallel to how cities treat their heritage buildings and spaces, asking “What does it mean to live in a city without a collective memory?” With another downtown
revitalization renewal plan being put forward today, I hope this is something they ask themselves.
