Plymouth, Montserrat

The daily dose (archidose) has recently published "Alberto Burri's Cretto, a massive piece of land art that sits atop the ruined remains of Gibellina, a Sicilian town destroyed by earthquake in 1968," and began thinking if this would be the kind of strategy for the development of Plymouth, a town that met with a similar fate. Given that the area is still under threat of an active volcano, how can we conceptualise the space for future development as a space of memory?

More successful in making attractive surfaces.
