Inspiring our purpose: The Lamp of Memory

‘For, indeed, the greatest glory of a building is not in its stones or its gold. Its glory is in its Age, and in that deep sense of voicefulness… which we feel in walls that have long been washed by the passing waves of humanity.’

The Seven Lamps of Architecture, John Ruskin, 1849

Our purpose is inspired from John Ruskin’s, Seven Lamps of Architecture. A 19th-century work in which today’s guiding principles of preservation began.
