    Post 10,000. Five years. How far have we come? How much knowledge have we stockpiled? Where is this research headed? What is the primary motive of this line of work, this digital wunderkammer? 

    Like this third version of the physicalization of exception, herein designating an all-but-forgotten history of the location of the surrender of Atlanta to General Sherman, will this work matter? Will it make a change? Or, like the ephemeral general preconception of these works as a metaphor for architecture in the City of Creative Destructionwill this tactical urbanist intervention fade silently from memory? In architecture, we build ostensibly for permanence, but thermodynamics (as well as perhaps the one correct assumption from the Bible) tells us it is all “ash to ash.” Perhaps, in this world of past, present, and future ash, these projects could at least inspire hope, and maybe a little existential contemplation.
