Both cities have a sad track record with the protection of historically significant structures, and have countless modernist architecture bones in their walk-in closets. Both are gleaming their real estate teeth, and are penchant for greed and mediocre architecture. And both have a negligible clue of the cultural values bestowed upon them by their architectural heritage.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/54565/virtual-activism Virtual Activism Aaron Plewke 2007-03-27T12:38:00-04:00 >2012-11-30T18:31:37-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/4v/4vclmuda93tw4en9.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <strong>Virtual Activism</strong> is the first episode of a 3-part mini-series created by the Modern Architecture Protection Agency (<strong>mapa</strong>).
