Necrotectónicas. Architects’ deaths

The love for the architecture makes many people venerate his authors, want to know more of his lives and, sigh, of his deaths. It seems as if this way we were capable of understanding them better and of valuing more his works, which are, definitively, the only ones that matter. These deaths of the biggest architects them go down the unattainable pedestal, make them more human and join more theirs them.

On the other hand, when we read a statement on someone we are reading also somehow a statement on us themselves, and like that feel, of this involved way, a tuning in with the great architecture.
