Ruin and Redemption in Architecture

What is it about abandoned spaces that inspire us to seek them out, to re-imagine them and sometimes to transform them into extraordinary new designs?

Dan Barasch, author of Ruin and Redemption in Architecture and co-founder of the Lowline, and Dylan Thuras, co-founder of Atlas Obscura and co-author of multiple Atlas Obscura books, will offer a visual journey of extraordinary abandoned spaces and explore the possibilities and power within them.

A book signing follows the event.
