Toward an Architecture of Change
This concluding chapter considers whether counterpreservation was first and foremost a socio-architectural phenomenon specific to Berlin during the Wende, even if it could be applied to other places. In doing so the chapter also considers whether there can be “an architecture of change,” of transience, alongside the impulse to build stable and enduring cities and buildings. Counterpreservation is a step toward a conceptual exploration in this direction, even if it cannot account for all of the aspects of an architecture of change, which would involve issues that go beyond historic structures. Here, the chapter sketches what such a broader investigation might look like, providing preliminary explorations that point to a direction where the present study might unfold.
