When the forces of economic and civic power give rise to great architecture, we rejoice. When the same forces, under different circumstances, destroy great buildings, we lament. Architectural historian Michael R. Allen presents stories from the city’s lost architectural history, as well as buildings that were replaced with equal or greater works of architecture, and how public memory can keep any building alive eternally.

On Science: Saints and Sinners mini-Series is an Academy of Science and OASIS St. Louis Series featuring Informative sessions on the timely topics and pressing issues in science and contemporary society with some of the region’s top scientists and engineers, innovators and inventors.
