He titled the elegy, “The Names,” which voices the honest truth for the victims of the attacks on World Trade Center in New York on September 11th, 2001. The first stanza clearly shows that the poem is written in first person, when “I” is referring to the speaker, and demonstrates

Ernest Shtepani Shasivar Rada ID:02021120 Delirious New York Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan Rem Koolhaas Our role is not to retreat back to the catacombs, but to became more human in skyscraper Manhattan is the theatre for the terminal stage of western civilization...A mountain range of evidence without manifesto. Rem Koolhaas, observes and begins his retroactive manifesto, a scripted chronology of the stages of Manhattanism, its changing’s and lasting legacies; especially the culture of congestion. Manhattans own metropolitan urbanism and revolutionary lifestyle. Through his optimistic narrative “Delirious New York” he documents the repeated elements and themes in New York’s development and decline that make it a theatre of progress and the capital of timeless crisis.
Delirious New York – Rem Koolhaas In a celebration of New York, Koolhaas’s delirious New York depicts the city as a metaphor for the incredible diversity in human behavior. He suggests that the city holds infinite possibilities for material and fictional activities and events and that the ‘culture of congestion’ is ultimately the essence of a metropolitan lifestyle. He pays homage to Coney Island, "the laboratory", highlighting the vital role it played in the building philosophies that would emerge later in Manhattan. Uncovering the roots of the modern metropolis, he sets a stage of a ‘mythical island’ for an urban experiment based on its apparent accomplishments that portray a glorified Manhattan, breaking it down into, Coney Island, the

In 1968 King would deliver his famous “I have a Dream Speech” in front of thousands in Washington Memorial. His speech was based off of a speech that Philip Randolph wrote in 1941 showing how prolonged the civil rights movement was. It was there at Washington Memorial where the advocate of Civil Rights was assassinated. Even after his death King’s speech is commemorated and lies as a basis for the American society. King taught the people that the color of their skin does not define them nor should they be limited by it.
(Spark 2008:147) Philip Johnson (1906-2005) built The Glass House and its counterpart, the Guest House, in a piece of land of his property in New Cannan (Connecticut), as his own residence. It was finished in 1949. The house was the result of his final dissertation project for his architecture studies and it is considered as a high Modernist masterpiece (Melchionne 2998:191). Nevertheless, the house was only intended to be a primary residence but a weekend refuge to escape the New York stressed and overwhelming way of life. The Glass House was used as a place for the gathering of architects and other artists, in order to discuss Modernist architecture (Huppatz 2011).
The actual remains of Albert Pike in 1944 were placed within the ( House of the Temple ) at the corner of Sixteenth and S street, Washington DC. This massive stone structure is a symbolic reference directing attention towards the current Freemasonery agenda about the birth of a New World Order. The roots of Freemasonery date back to King Solomon 's Temple, with a single indivi- dual named Hiram Abiff the son of a widow from the tribe of Naphtali. Hiram Abiff is the symbolic martyr of Freemasonery; Hiram was a special craftsman who did distinctive work in bronze for King Solomon during the building of his Temple. Hiram Abiff would be considered a valid answer to the question by other men with they privately associate in Masonic Lodges, studing Masonic teachings they have embraced the death, burial, and resurrection of Hiram in their rituals, that would cause others to doubt their own Christianity.
Washington Becomes U.S. Capitol- In November of 1800, president John Adams became the first of the United States Presidents to live in the White House, previously on June 11, 1800 the Federal Government decided to move the nations capitol from Philadelphia Pennsylvania, to the city of Washington in the District of Colombia (Milli Canter). When Adams first moved into the White House it was still under construction by the French engineer Pierre Charles L’Enfant chosen by George Washington. Overall the location of the capitol was a compromise between the northern states who wanted to pay off the national debt, and the southern states who wanted the Capitol's location to support agriculture and the slave trade (Washington). This decision had a significant impact on the culture and social structure of the United States. The capitol became a symbol for America’s
Also, the lunchroom of Carlos Third became his personal office. In the famous reforms he made, we can highlight the introduction of the Mora Army as his personal guard. Life in the palace was very complicated, people think living in a palace is a luxury and a place where you can just avoid everyday problems. However, this is not true at all, my grandfather had a very hard childhood in the palace, with constant guards, armed, walking around the place and no time to see his family in privacy. Related with the architecture, the place was very cold and every single object of furniture had a massive value, so my grandfather and granduncles had to be very careful walking around the place.
Today, the main mansion is a private residence but there are guest rooms in the Carriage House rented out to anybody interested. Back in time, in 1843, a rich merchant built it. However, he never got a chance to enjoy life in his dream home as the civil War started soon afterwards. A canon as part of the city’s defense was parked just across the road. It made the man flee in panic.
