DESCRIPTION

This conversation between internationally celebrated photographer Lynn Davis and best-selling author Alan Weisman focuses on the architecture legacy of the space industry. The topics to be discussed… What should be done to document and preserve these extraordinary structures from abandonment and ruin? Could preservation and restoration make some of these off site locations into major architectural attractions and destinations? For Space Project Lynn Davis traveled to historic sites in Kazakhstan, Russia, Germany, French Guiana, and the United States.
