The genius of countless architects has produced monuments throughout the ages that have memorialized virtually all aspects of the human experience. Whether lavish or humble, many such monuments have stood the test of time and still fascinate us today. Others have long perished, existing only in fragments and distant memory. Still other architects and artists dreamt of incredible edifices never realized. Memoria Architecturae: the Fragmentary, the Forgotten, and the Fantastic thus paid tribute to the memory of lost architecture, fragmentary remains, and the architecture of dreams and fancy.
