EV­ERY­THING OLD

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Su­san and Karl Horn, the cur­rent own­ers of the Roque Lo­bato House, and ar­chi­tec­tural his­to­rian Chris Wil­son lament the fact that, be­cause of the changes made to the house over the past sev­eral decades, it is not deemed his­tor­i­cally per­ti­nent by the city. Karl Horn looks back to 19th-cen­tury art critic John Ruskin, who said a build­ing’s his­tor­i­cal value “was not in its stone and mor­tar but rather in its abil­ity to bear wit­ness to the pass­ing waves of hu­man­ity.”
