I found this article on MSNBC.com yesterday on architourism….if I had more time today I would write a longer blog post about it, but it’s almost dinner time and my stomach is growlin’ so this means no waxing poetic…at least until I hit Pelligrinos for some grub.
Regardless, it’s an interesting article that discusses a concept we’ve alluded to several times with the Recent Past project. I thought it was interesting/appropriate/whatever-enough to share on its own.
Check it out. See what you think. Marvel at Modern Architecture. Also: economic advice for “architourists”
Any ideas of what you’d like to see in terms of architourism in Rochester? I’m thinking this has a lot of potential, especially as people are taking the quickly-becoming-overused-buzzphrase-du-jour “staycations” to combat the high cost of travel in these tough economic times.
