This short essay discusses the dialectic relation between architecture and memory. The essay points out how architecture captures past and present memory. Spatial imagery and creative architectural design have an impact upon our reasoning and upon making sense of the world. Living in a society has an impact on received traditions and the continuing legacy of collective memory passed on from one generation to the other.
