“Verticality, iconography and permanence, and when you have those three things in a building, people quickly respond.”

Investigating the nature of memory and resonance within architecture and place, Terminus weaves a tapestry of taped telephone conversations with those who once worked in the grand New York Central Terminal in Buffalo during its heyday.
