part ten: time, timeliness, and timelessness

Musée d'Orsay, Paris (Gae Aulenti, 1980-87); originally the Gare d'Orsay by Victor Laloux, 1898)

introduction

tempus fugit

Architecture can be locked in, responsive to, or transcend time. While almost all buildings reveal something specific about the time in which they were built, that meaning may change as its public changes, as one use fades and another emerges, and as social custom and utility make their mark. Age itself takes its toll, although it is interesting to consider how and why some buildings grow more beautiful as they patina with the passage of time while others simply get old.

From a Christian perspective,
