“I could tell you how many steps make up the streets rising like stairways ,

and the degrees of the arcade’s curves…

but I already know this would be the same as telling you nothing.

The city does not consist of this,

but of relationships

between the measurements of its space

and the events of its past.

…As this wave from memories flows in,

the city soaks it up like a sponge and expands…

The city, however does not tell its past,

but contain it…”

-Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Architecture is permanent and experience is fleeting.

*Architecture is fleeting and experience is permanent

Sporting events are more than just timed brackets of wins and losses.  A match, a season, the Olympics, are all recurring happenings, yet each can’t be relived in the same way again. When design mimics this unattainability, it emphasizes the reality that only the memory endures.

These temporal events live on within the collective memory of those present. The process of this disappearing act is beautifully choreographed – each element of the place disappearing and, in turn, cementing this moment in memory. All physical traces of the event vanish.
