A windswept drive-in theater, where desert stretches out past the cinema screen as we sit transfixed- lit only by xenon and starlight.

Swiss Cottage Library (1964) by Spence, Bonnington and Collins.

"…first opened in 1964 at 88 Avenue Road, Swiss Cottage, . The centre was originally intended to provide a new Civic Centre for what was then the Metropolitan Borough of Hampstead with administration offices and a council chamber planned though with the reorganisation of local government in London in 1964 this master plan was abandoned and only the central library and adjoining swimming pool were built.”

Across Europe one finds buildings that lie unfinished, some are skeletal in form and purpose. These concrete forms represent a stage in architectural process that, in their case, may never be completed. Here we see architecture paused; construction has ceased and we are left with the bones of buildings in stasis.

In this state, an architectural lineage is revealed by their resemblance to the remains of classical structures. Incomplete for economic and political reasons, they becomes runis of modernity.
