Buildings in the 20th century were built on visions of the future. Now that the future is here, many buildings sit abandoned with scrub and overgrowth threatening to overtake the rusting behemoths.

Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe that keeps piling ruin upon ruin and hurls it in front of his feet. … The storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call progress.”
