       Invented but True: Neighborhood Chronicles

       Architecture is an inherently narrative medium.

       Narrative produces attention in everyone.

       Architectural narrative creates an architectural attention in the lay public that parallels an architect's kind of attention.  

       Narrative architecture is transmissible, communicable, and attention to it spreads like a virus.
