Similarly to us humans everything inhabiting this Earth has a certain lifespan, where the parts making up the whole functions well and operates gracefully. There is no exception for architecture. Buildings age, they do not remain intact forever. Time leaves traces and marks on structures through weathering and human activity. Buildings constantly change, they are unfinished entities.
Should architects perhaps design the end of life stage with the same care and attention as we design the upbringing of buildings?
Seen above a retake on Frank Duffy’s Shearing Layers Diagram. After use this proposal and all its organic parts will deteriorate and compost.
