Preserving architectural heritage is smart for the economy and smart for the soul of a community. Our historical architecture tells our story, our way of life, our priorities and more than anything our sense of vision. This film is brilliantly done, erasing bland grey concrete and glass in typical box designs to revealing marvelous curves, turrets and archways. Before we act to destroy architectural heritage, we must ask ourselves – where do we want to live? In bland grey uniform boxes or creative innovative spaces. For where we live, we become.
