Don Justo, who never had any training as an architect or a builder, was "left with [nothing but] the strong conviction that God wanted him to build a temple." And so he did. The year was 1963 when Don Justo first laid the foundation of the Cathedral in Mejorada that he continues to build today.</p><p>Perceived by neighbors as "The Lunatic Builder" because he was building without any authorized permission, Don Justo remained steadfast in his spiritual mission&nbsp;&mdash; with the help of public donations and technical advice&nbsp;&mdash; to keep working on his temple until "the end of [his] days".</p><p>Sounds like a movie, right?</p><p>Well, director <a href="http://jamesrogan.net" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">James Rogan</a> created a short documentary in 2010 based on Don Justo's ongoing story called <a href="http://www.cathedraljusto.com/home.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"The Madman and the Cathedral"</a>.

So-called&nbsp;"Freedom of Panorama" refers to a set of provisions in copyright law, that allows someone to create and publish images of a piece of art or architecture that's permanently located in the public space, regardless of its existing copyright provisions. The provisions are adopted to varying degrees in different countries &ndash; in the US, only buildings are protected under FOP, and in the EU, FOP provisions depend on whether the image is for commercial use or not, as well as the kind of object being photographed.</p><p>But soon, the EU may decide to effectively abolish FOP.

The carvings, details, public spaces were glorious. My heart goes out to its citizens who suffer with their city. As you can see from these images I took in 1976, the medieval town has been delicate for decades. Loosely stacked bricks are everywhere. One can also see what splendid art has been lost. Not all has been destroyed, and I am sure the Nepalis will rebuild as they have in the past. Still, the earthquake shook more than just buildings.</em></p><p><em>If you look carefully you may notice something unusual about these photos. They show no cars, pedicabs, or even bicycles. At the time I took these images, Katmandu was an entirely pedestrian city. Everyone walked everywhere. Part of why I loved it. That has not been true for decades, so this is something else that was lost long ago. Also missing back then was signage. There are few signs...</em></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/126435207/future-cities-of-the-past Future cities of the past Alexander Walter 2015-04-29T18:17:00-04:00 >2015-05-04T21:17:38-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/58/58f7a7cadfe54f27fa968e49e9d2a21a.jpg" width="514" height="359" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>But supplementing that aesthetic of &ldquo;the future&rdquo; sketched in imaginary edifice, the full SF vision of the future city is a mosaic, constructed from fragments of the cities that we recognize, including symbols that are decidedly from the past.
