What ruins can teach us about beauty and decay (washingtonpost.com)

An earlier book about the subject is "In Ruins" by Christopher Woodward.

I also liked this "Ruins and Futurity" article http://www.sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/ruins_and_futurity about the use of ruins in science fiction.

I was only able to read one paragraph due to the paywall. Do you have a workaround? Thanks.


(Generally, just pasting a paywalled article URL into archive.is works.)
