The city is always in a constant state of flux, forever reinventing itself in order to survive and remain relevant, tearing down the old to build the new.  What once stood on a city corner or took up an entire block for the past hundred years can be demolished in a week and something bigger, though questionably better, put in its place in less than a year.


In placing these two constants one on top of the other, Johnston creates a symbiotic relationship between the two.  Maybe to move forward something from the past will have to be torn down.
