This critical academic exercise will roughly be a matching, or an amalgamation between three major visions of Western architecture and archaeology of late socialist architecture (pre-post-socialist) in the East. Both have failed, the first visions in architectural and urban terms, the later one in terms of ideology. Combining thus memory and matter the overall framework of this study is seeking contemporary aspects of both visions and ideology, and it’s future aesthetics. Given the fact that significant amount of people in Michigan comes from both West and East hemispheres of global migration, the works in this masterclass may relate very closely to the future of space, however both remote in time and space. It will be challenging to fight or choose go along with the forces of nostalgia and archeology combined.
