Morton discusses the symbolism of permanence that figures in the shelters built in homeless communities in New York City. One homeless community, The Hill, had existed for approximately ten years prior to its demolition. Morton recounts the stories of individuals who lived in this community. She also discusses neighborhoods founded through economic hardship in pursuit of the American dream. She describes a Puerto Rican community in which the inhabitants came together and created an echo of their homeland.


Dunes Hotel And Casino Demolition

There is no audio. Not a lecture, but a documentary video made by Greg Slowick, Julie Brode and other SCI-Arc students. The video begins with 18 minutes of daytime scenes captured from the car of Route 15, the Las Vegas Strip, and Fremont Street. That evening, the demolition is preceded by an 11-minute fireworks display. The 1964 Dunes sign, and the 1961 North Tower quickly collapse into clouds of smoke after a series of explosions. For four minutes the crowd of gawkers is surveyed. Next, a motionless camera captures 30 minutes of changing colors in the sky above Las Vegas. The video concludes with 12 minutes of examination of the rubble the next morning.
