When trauma occurs in architecture it leaves more than a traumatic memory and psychological scarring. In fact, when a traumatic experience occurs, the experience is not finite and it is imbedded within us and becomes a part of us. The architecture carries the attachment of personal experience and or cultural identity, an attack on architecture becomes even more significant. In all circumstances of trauma, the subsequent response becomes pivotal. Whether it is to deny or to reconcile with the event, it is these post-traumatic steps which determine the lasting detriment or benefit we receive from the experience. This essay is my exploration of the architectural response to trauma as each case, also examined in this paper, presents significant opportunity as a "future memory".
Keywords: Architecture post-traumatic, trauma, cultural memory.
