Is it time to let some heritage sites go? What happens if we choose not to intervene? What possibilities emerge when change is embraced rather than resisted? Caitlin DeSilvey's new book, Curated Decay: Heritage Beyond Saving (University of Minnesota Press, 2017), questions if we can preserve all heritage sites and if it might be better to allow some to decay.
