INSTITUTIONALIZING MEMORY:  The U.S. National Register of Historic Places 

The National Historic Landmark list and other collections of historic sites were combined in 1966 into a new National Register of Historic Places. At its birth, the register contained 803 listings, about half of which came from the old Historic Landmark list.

Subsequently America discovered a passion for commemorating its history. There were 56 additions to the list in 1968, 360 in 1969, 880 in 1970, and in each year but one since 1971, at least 1,000 sites have been added. As of last week, it included 90,018 entries.

subtilitas:

"‘Architects have to stop thinking in terms of buildings only. Built and physical architecture, freed from the technological limitations of the past, will more intensely work with spatial qualities as well as the psychological ones. The process of erection will get a new meaning, spaces will more consciously have haptic, optic and acoustic properties. A true architecture of our time will have to redefine itself and to expand its means. Many areas outside traditional building will enter the realm of architecture, as architecture and “architects” will have to enter new fields. All are architects. Everything is architecture.’"

Architect, theorist, artist, designer, and writer Hans Hollein has passed away at age 80. The 1985 recipient of the Pritzker prize, Hollein was a fairly polarizing figure in architectural discourse, putting forth some of the more challenging and fascinating ideas on architecture, while producing some of the more disputed structures in recent architectural history.
